The eighth annual Student Leadership Conference entitled, "Igniting the Spark, Focusing the Flame" will be held Monday, March 9, 2015, at the Hylton Performing Arts Center, from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. The Student Leadership Conference is expected to draw 1,500 high school and eighth grade middle school students, and will give them the opportunity to build their leadership skills.
