To kick off the morning, students will hear from keynote speaker, author Nicole Kronzer. Nicole Kronzer is the author of the young adult novels Unscripted and The Roof Over Our Heads. Unscripted was named a Best Book for Young Adults by the American Library Association and was a Minnesota Book Award Finalist. Participants will then join in three hands-on sessions that will focus on finding strengths and being your best self, learning about the different ways to lead, and supporting leaders and one another to promote Sisterhood.
