212° – the temperature at which water boils – focuses on taking students to the boiling point of leadership. At 211° water is extremely hot, but just one more degree gets us to the next level, the boiling point. This conference focuses on the development of the individual student. Students will be challenged to push the limits of their leadership. Themes for this conference include virtues and growth, allowing students to attend in two consecutive years without seeing the same curriculum. This conference is designed for 7-10 grade students.
The overarching objectives for the 2018-19 212° Virtues conference include:
