Falcon football coaching staff hosts Leadership Success Forum

by June Portnoy

All current Pennsbury High School varsity, junior varsity, sophomore and incoming freshman Falcon football players were invited to attend a Leadership Success Forum held at the school on Friday, June 3rd. The forum was hosted by the Pennsbury Falcon football coaching staff and organized by the Football Parent Club, a group of parent volunteers who support the football team.

The purpose of the forum was to prepare all potential players to practice great leadership skills, both on and off the field. Its goal was also to help prepare them for the challenges ahead that many of them will face in high school, college, and ultimately, in the workplace.

The session was presented by Kim R. Wells, a former Pennsbury graduate, who is Executive Director of Executive Education and the Center for Career Excellence at Howard University School of Business in Washington, DC.

by Patricia Cangelosi

Last June, Tasha Schapiro – now a senior at Pennsbury High School – was one of five musicians to win the Youth Orchestra of Bucks County’s (YOBC’s) Annual Concerto Competition.
