The W welcomes 100 high school students from across Mississippi and Alabama to campus for the Hearin High School Leadership Conference.
The weekend conference is for high school seniors who find themselves drawn to the forefront of organizations in their schools and communities.
At the conference, the scholar-leaders will join other like-minded leaders for a weekend of informative and entertaining workshops and speakers.
While at the conference, students will have the opportunity to apply for the $10,000 Hearin Leadership Scholarship. The four-year scholarships are based primarily upon demonstrated school/community leadership. Other scholarships in varying amounts will also be awarded through the interview process. Awards are renewable depending upon the recipient’s participation in the MUW Hearin Leadership Program and performance at MUW.
The conference is hosted by the MUW Hearin Leadership Program and sponsored by the Robert M. Hearin Foundation.
