PHHS leadership class offers valuable lessons for the future.
Many students at Port Huron High School learn about the opportunity to participate in a classroom setting to learn valuable skills that they can take with them after graduation. A select group of students learn about this class and are chosen to participate in the class in their senior year. Shane Black first heard about leadership class at the end of his junior year when he was pulled aside by Mrs. Ford.
“I wanted to participate at first because all of my friends were also participating in the class, but I also saw it as an opportunity to get to know more people.” said Shane. When asked if he thought the class would teach him valuable lessons for the future, he responded enthusiastically with “Absolutely! this class helps you handle situations that may arise in your life, from people getting in your face to a mid-life crisis.”
For those students that want to get into this class, Shane recommends keeping up your grades, good attendance, participate in extracurricular activities and be open to other people. “People want to get to know you and you want to get to know them in this class, I have made many new friends in this class. It really opens you up to people and allows them to get to know you.”
Shane Black’s goals for the future include attending SC4 to study acting, he hopes to get to know more people and learn more skill sets for the future.
