LYS 2016: Star Wars: Leadership Awakens! has officially come to a close.
The Union is quiet; the dorms are emptying out and everyone is heading home. But before our last closing circle together, each group sang a farewell song expressing all the SuperGREAT things that they experienced this week.
We also announced the Group of the Week winner! And those are…
Third Place Group of the Week: Jedi Knights
Second Place Group of the Week: Droids
GROUP OF THE WEEK: Yodas
After one last time singing our theme songs - “Tomorrow Never Comes” by Zac Brown Band and “No Man is an Island” - and the LYS fight song, everyone shared some bittersweet goodbyes. As LYS 2016 comes to a close and we leave the Union, remember that just because seminar is over does not mean that it’s out of your life! LYS does not end on Friday afternoon; it’s something that stays with you forever. It is in the lessons you learn that you take back to your schools and your communities. It is in the true friendships that you made that will continue for years to come. It is the comfort in knowing that you can be accepted for being yourself as well as so much more!
We encourage you to live everyday as if you were at LYS (well, maybe not the cheering part). We hope that you never forget your experience here and what you learned about yourself and others. Those are the lessons, moments, friendships, and memories that will stay with you for a lifetime.
The 2016 Staff would like to thank each and every delegate for making this week such a success! Now, go back to your communities, apply what you learned, make a difference, and never forget ”NO MAN IS AN ISLAND!”
“Never forget all the days that were LYS.”
LYS love and ours,
LYS 2016 Staff
