LEWISBURG, Pa. -- The Donald Heiter Community Center in Lewisburg is currently piloting a Leadership Program open to middle school students that want to become leaders in the community. On Monday, March 26, in a partnership between the Bucknell Freeman College of Management and the Bucknell Athletics Leadership Institute, three seniors led a session on project management and assessment at the Heiter Center.

Ben Richard and Trey Johnson of the football team, along with cheerleader Sami Golaski opened the session with a friendly basketball competition in order to allow the students to get active and demonstrate that learning about project management can be fun. Following the competition, the student-athletes spoke about the important steps involved in planning a successful project drawing on classroom and athletic experiences. The seniors also had the opportunity to give advice and feedback to the middle school students on the personal projects that they are creating as part of the leadership program.
