Leadership Academy had a busy week seven. The week started out with a trip to Pekin Community High School. Dr. Danielle Owens (District 303) explained all the opportunities PCHS has to offer not only their students but our community. Dr. Bill Link (District 108) spoke about the educational opportunities that begin as young as preschool in the 108 district. After hearing the speakers Vice Principal Joel Schmieg led a tour of District 303's CTE area.

The week concluded at the 182nd Peoria Air National Guard. This was a joint tour with the Peoria Leadership Academy. Col. McDonough spoke about the importance of the Air National Guard to the community, as well as the support they lend throughout all branches of the military. Everyone then moved to the main hangar to explore the C-130 cargo plane, weapons, plane simulator and many other support supplies. This tour is always a group favorite.
