Fellows meet with Kevin Denson in Leadership Exercise

On Thursday, January 26 the fellows were treated to a presentation from Mr. Kevin Denson, an AP Psychology teacher at First Colonial High School, Nationally recogized high school soccer coach and current NA parent. Mr. Denson spoke with our fellows about how personality type can impact leadership style. Our students took the Myers-Briggs personality test and brought their results to the session. Mr. Denson broke down each component of the test for our students and applied it to leadership theory. Afterwards the students competed in the Marshmallow Challenge, in which they worked in teams to use tape, raw spaghetti and a marshmallow to build a tower with the marshmallow perched on top. Courtney Byler and Alana Davitt defeated the boys, constructing a tower that was 21″ high. The fellows learned team work and how their indivdual personality fed into the group dynamic — they also had a lot of fun! (I will send you guys a couple of pictures to post with this as well!)
