Chick-Fil-A Leader Academy
Troy Christian High School is now in its third year of being a part of the Chick-Fil-A Leader Academy. The Leader Academy is a national leadership program that teaches leadership principles to high school students and mobilizes them to make an impact through action in their communities. We are sponsored by Doug and Ann Knostman, our Troy Chick-Fil-A owners, to be a part of this program. We currently have 32 high school students in the leader academy. Two of those students serve as point leaders for the team. Their role is to lead the meetings and organize communication within the team. The team meets once per month, and they participate in a curriculum that teaches leadership concepts like vision, communication, innovation, and many others. Each meeting focuses on a different leadership concept. They also take on three service projects throughout the year, where they can put these concepts into practice.
Last year our leader academy served at three different organizations and built a resource library for a foster care organization called Isaiah’s Place. The library was designed to meet a need to provide parenting and life skill resources for the families within their organization, as well as provide resources for their caseworkers. We are excited to partner with the Knostmans and Chick-Fil-A, as we continue to help our students develop as servant leaders who have an impact on their communities.
