St. Jude Leadership Society – Lauren Dempsey

Kenzie Webb, Staff

Arlington High School Senior Lauren Dempsey was recently accepted into the St. Jude Leadership Society. The program will take place in March of 2020. This program has a very competitive acceptance rate, especially since this is its inaugural year. Lauren was selected from 40 different private and public school students in the surrounding Memphis area. Lauren states, “over the course of six months, I will be working hand and hand with a team of ALSAC members and others to create and run a large fundraising event that is fun and based upon something that interests me and others in order to work towards $2500 for St. Jude.”

Lauren is very excited to help be a part of a program that will help raise money for St. Jude, but to also better her leadership skills. “I feel as if the whole experience will be very eye-opening and meaningful and that I will learn a lot of things that I will take with me throughout the rest of my life.”

Lauren will participate, along with her Digital Journalism teacher Jessica Roberts, in this new leadership program.

Congrats Lauren on getting accepted into this amazing program!
