The LEAD Scholars Academy hosted a brunch on Saturday morning for all of the families who were in attendance for Family Weekend (September 19-21). Students and families had the opportunity to participate in activities which included a photo booth and a brainteaser challenge.

A packet of 10 challenges was given to families to solve. There was a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners based on the order the attendees finished and whether or not they got all the answers correct. A Roaring 20s theme was carried out through the decorations of feathers and pearls in the center pieces. The photo booth background consisted of a staircase in a grand ballroom and attendees could choose to wear props such as feather boas, pearl necklaces, hats and flapper head pieces. The theme continued with 1920’s music playing throughout the event.

Danielle Soto, a first year LEAD Scholar stated, “I really like how there were brainteasers on each table to do, it was a great way to bring the families together.”

Families from all over were able to come together and enjoy time with their students, while traveling back in time to the roaring 20s.

Alex Diaz, second year LEAD Scholar and LEAD Executive Board Open House director said, “It was great to be able to show my mom a program that I am so involved with.”

LEAD Scholars Academy provides students with various opportunities to learn more about themselves, develop new leadership skills, and become student leaders through programs and events, including campuswide leadership workshops, leadership retreats, and leadership conferences.
