The Capstone Leadership Academy at the University of Alabama is a two-day event for select sophomores from across Alabama who have shown an interest in leadership through service. The purpose of the event, which features dynamic speakers and group activities, is to give students the tools and the training to apply their leadership skills to opportunities in their own communities. Three outstanding sophomores from Macon East Academy were invited to attend this year’s academy – Georgia Blaze, Will Desmarais, and Jonathan Mathis (unable to attend). Hosted by the Capstone Council and Honors College, the theme of the academy is Values, Vision, and Voice. Along with leadership lectures, Georgia and Will enjoyed a campus and stadium tour, group activities, and participating in a service project.
