OHSAA Foundation to Host Nation’s Largest Student Leadership Conference Oct. 1
The Ohio Union at OSU will host 1,500 students from OHSAA member schools
 
COLUMBUS, Ohio – “Respect” is the theme of the 2019 OHSAA Foundation Student Leadership Conference, which will be held October 1 at the Ohio Union at The Ohio State University when a capacity crowd of 1,500 students will gather, making it once again the largest student leadership conference in the nation.
 
Led by professional speaker and event coordinator Harvey Alston, the conference will feature individuals who will speak about leadership, achievement and overcoming adversity. The conference is free to attend for the first 1,500 students and is geared toward students in grades 9 through 11.
 
“The student leadership conference is one of the highlights of the year for the OHSAA,” said OHSAA Executive Director Jerry Snodgrass. “This is a big part of what school sports are all about. Leadership is one of the many values that can be established by participation in school sports. I know that the messages and inspiration that these students take back to their communities will make an impact all over Ohio.” 
 
Registration information has been sent to member schools. Media are welcome to attend and conduct interviews with student-athletes, speakers and OHSAA staff.
