Class 34 continued where they left off from their orientation. At the two-day retreat (September 6th and 7th) at Mount Hermon the class made a concerted effort to get to know one another, to learn, and to enjoy the experience. The first day focused on the Community Assessment Project (Keisha Frost), True Colors (Seaside Company), the history of Santa Cruz County (Sandy Lydon), and a leadership walk (Dave Vincent.) Before lunch the class had an opportunity to tour the grounds at Mount Hermon with Bill Fernald, Vice President of Guest Services and graduate of Class 24. All-in-all it this turned out to be a great day.
Team building and bonding were the focus of the second day of the retreat; and this is certainly what occurred! The Mount Hermon ropes course and zipline proved challenging and exciting for most. These experiences – frightening at times, thrilling at others – help to solidify relationships in ways that could not happen otherwise. The staff at Mount Hermon were exceptionally helpful so that everyone came away feeling proud of their accomplishments. The class also had the chance to meet and hear from our LSCC Chair, Laura Owens, and Chair of our Marketing Committe, Sondra Woods.
