Will Wright - Leo Club Advisor
Leo Club encourage youths to develop leadership qualities by participating in social service activities. They are dependent on a Lions Club to sponsor and initiate a Leo Club. The students conduct various projects in the fields of health care, elders, children, differently abled, literacy and education, and self-development. Leos can raise funds by conducting fund-raising projects. They can conduct projects with another Leo Club, sponsoring Lions club, or with an outside organization. Leo Clubs are sponsored by Lions clubs and comprise an official program of the Lions clubs international.
The MMU Leo Club completed a Fall Cleanup activite at 17 different homes on November 3. They also have fundraisers, which the funds will be used to defray travel expenses to Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, where they plan to spend a week or two next summer volunteering. The students have been in touch with Bernie Sanders, who expressed interest in supporting the trip when he met the officers during Harvest Market this year
