FHS Students Selected for Chick-Fil-A Leader Academy

Frenship High School students participating in the kickoff for the Chick-fil-A Leader Academy™ completed a community-minded project as they packaged 100 meals to be donated to the South Plains Food Bank.

The students were selected by FHS to participate in the Chick-fil-A Leader Academy, a national high school leadership program that not only teaches students leadership skills, but also empowers students to put their skills into action.

“We’re so excited to be partnering with an organization like Chick-Fil-A. Not only is the Leader Academy a nationally recognized program, but Chick-Fil-A is a gold standard of leadership development in their own organization. By bringing those lessons of leadership and service through action to the students of Frenship High School, we have the opportunity to equip them with the tools to effect positive change in their school and amongst their peers. We’re working hard to grow leaders who will graduate and take these lessons with them into their families, businesses, and communities,” said Keith Patrick, Director of Entrepreneurship and Innovation for Frenship School District.

Students are expected to learn leadership skills and apply them throughout the school year to plan and implement an “impact project” of their own designThe students don’t just learn about leadership in the classroom, but they get out in the community to put it into action, making an “Impact through action” in their community.

The Chick-fil-A Foundation offers financial support to the impact projects and local Chick-fil-A Franchisee Operators sponsor the program for the schools in their community and often serve as mentors to the students involved.
