Student leadership was on full display at Bellefontaine High School this week.

Chieftain Leaders presented to members of this year’s Leadership Logan County class in the Distance Learning Center on Tuesday.

The student-led club detailed their goals and core values.

Chieftain Leaders was formed last school year.

It’s a combination of several high school leadership clubs, including Leaders in Action, Student Senate, Class Officers, and Logan County Youth Leadership.

It’s the largest student-run club at BHS.

Their current goals are recognition of the Chieftain Leaders Club, togetherness, and recruitment.

The future goals are school involvement, students’ ideas being heard, community involvement, and school pride.

Chieftain Leaders has three committees embedded in the club.

The social climate committee focuses on school pride, school spirit, making the school more student-oriented, and creating a fun environment for students.

The service committee has the goal of giving back to the school and the community. They have volunteered at football concessions and Volleybuff. Their future projects are Relay for Life and other fundraising opportunities.

The leadership committee organizes training with four pillars of leadership.

The first pillar is worthy of being followed. This is based on character, confidence, and attitude.

The next pillar is thinking like a leader by setting goals and being proactive, coachable, and passionate.

The third pillar is acting like a leader through public speaking, collaboration, conversation skills, and responsibility.

The final pillar is sustainable leadership by creating a legacy through commitment and reflection.

The club uses social media to make announcements, market fundraisers, and share events.

You can follow on Instagram and Twitter @leadersbhs or "BHS Chieftain Leaders" on Facebook. 

Chieftain Leaders also put together an interactive game for Leadership Logan County where members were asked to identify famous leaders from around the world.

Leadership Logan County then toured the high school and Bellefontaine Elementary School.

Attendees ate lunch with elementary students and learned about the food service operation for grades K-2.

BCS offers leadership training for students in each building.

Bellefontaine Elementary School has Chieftain Leaders, Bellefontaine Intermediate School has the Student Lighthouse Team with Leader in Me, Bellefontaine Middle School features the Chieftain Pride Ambassadors, and Bellefontaine High School has Chieftain Leaders.

Leadership Logan County is a nine-month program that runs from September to May. The group meets on the third Tuesday each month from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Each session focuses on a different topic and addresses a new area of leadership skill building, critical issues, and topics related to our county.

Jessica Simmons led the group’s visit to Bellefontaine City Schools on Tuesday.
