Six student-athletes from across the state will represent the Association at the NFHS National Student Leadership Summit, July 17-19, at the Hyatt Regency in Indianapolis, Ind. The six student-athletes will form the KHSAA’s Student Advisory Committee for the 2017-18 school year and will assist in the planning and execution of the Hype Student Leadership Conferences in August.

The KHSAA delegates for 2017 are:

Olivia Graber, Muhlenberg County

Karlee Mannon, St. Mary

Maggie Metzger, Assumption

Austin Wetherington, St. Mary

Amanda McConnell, DuPont Manual

Peyton Lipe, Muhlenberg County

Metzger plays basketball and softball for Assumption while McConnell plays volleyball for Manual.

This year’s National Student Leadership Summit is the third national conference since the program was revived in 2015 (it had been discontinued in 2010). The student-athletes selected to represent their states will split into groups and work through topical discussions on relevant and contemporary issues. The free program is designed to help students hone their leadership abilities and teach them how to effectively influence and lead their peers in a positive manner. The students will also participate in a community service project with the Indiana Special Olympics.
