On September 20th, students from Spanish Fork Junior High representing the various fall sports and the Student Council were invited to attend an awesome leadership conference and receive instruction from some very influential people.

Captain’s Academy is a fantastic leadership experience for young people.  The fall sport athlete captains representing SFJH were Spencer Larsen- Cross Country, Staci Lomenick- Cross Country, Noah Taylor- Golf, and McKenna Crook- Tennis.  Max MaKenzie attended representing Student Council. 

The meeting started off with a speaker from IHC about the importance of sleep for athletes and human beings.  Brodie Berg, a former Pro Golfer turned Fireman, then presented on what it means to be a leader, sharing some great experiences. 

After a short break the final speaker was Wes Ruff, the sports anchor for Channel 4 News.  Ruff presented on sportsmanship and being a captain.  Ruff also had many great experiences and stories to tell. 

It was very beneficial for these young students to attend and to be able to learn more about what it means to be a Captain!
