The Park View Student Council had the opportunity to attend a conference on leadership at BYU November 3. At the conference council members heard from outstanding motivational speakers, including John Bytheway. Students rotated through a series of sessions where they participated in team building activities, and learned about reaching goals, networking, and positive leadership. Students were also privileged to learn about false perceptions, responsibility and freedom, as magician Brad Barton represented these things visually through magic tricks.
