Student Leadership - Serving our school and community through Christ's LOVE

Student Leadership is a unique model of student government here at WCS, which is composed of class elected members and members who are selected through a 3-step application process by faculty. They serve their student body in three areas: advocating for the student body; spiritual development; events and activities.  These are examples of what Student Leadership is responsible for homecoming, Warrior Week, sunrise devotions, community service, etc.
