Music City Girls Lead!

Music City Girls Lead! is a leadership academy produced by Lipscomb University  in cooperation with the Champions4Women Committee of  the Nashville Local Organizing Committee, proud host of the 2014 NCAA Women’s Final Four.

The Academy will be a series of classes and experiences for high school girls in grades 9, 10, and 11 in the Middle Tennessee area. It will serve to strengthen girls in their pursuit of excellence through classroom and online learning, community experience and direct mentoring.

Engaging the students will be Nashville’s deep bench of local leaders and mentors, as well as experts on leadership development.  The Academy curriculum will cover six different areas: developing as a leader, becoming an ethical leader in multicultural society, developing vision and voice, learning to use technology in leadership roles, promoting wellness and health, and transforming vision into results.

The next Academy will begin in February of 2014, and sessions will be held on Saturdays at Lipscomb University’s Nelson and Sue Andrews Institute for Civic Leadership. Each academy will culminate with a graduation ceremony and will serve as a lasting legacy of the 2014 NCAA Women’s Final Four.
