"The Leadership Academy was very useful and thought provoking for me.  Through the years, I have seen bits and pieces of this puzzle we call boating safety, but to see them all come together and explained how they commingle was beyond useful to me and my career...  All the student’s skillsets were useful to the other participants in many ways.  I truly have a greater appreciation and understanding for how we can all work together and affect positive change in our states."
