     HAMMOND – “EvolveU,” Southeastern Louisiana University’s leadership conference for high school sophomore, junior and senior students, will feature three guest speakers in ten- minute “UTalk” segments.
     Southeastern alumna and Tangipahoa Parish School Superintendent Melissa Stilley, Southeastern alumnus, Gold Council member and principal of Hammond Eastside Magnet School Michael Kyles, and Southeastern senior marketing major, resident assistant, and Youtube personality Kristen Calfee will each address conference attendees.
     The theme of this year’s conference, which is scheduled March 15 in Southeastern’s Student Union, is “Wild About Leadership,” a safari/jungle theme.
     “EvolveU entails fun, interactive and educational experiences where student leaders will be able to develop, cultivate, and evolve their leadership skills while interacting with college students,” said Academic Advisor for the Center for Student Excellence Kandace Formaggio. “Southeastern student leaders will facilitate workshops based on the four main topics of the conference: leadership coaching, collaboration techniques, communication, and achieving balance.”
     Workshops will also be available for high school faculty and staff attending the conference.
     Registration for EvolveU is $35 per participant. The last day to register is Feb. 22.
