SGA and Leadership Groups


The Marshall SGA/Leadership – General Class is a community service learning, project-based learning class that serves to meet the needs of our students and school community. Students develop leadership skills by organizing a service project for clubs, classes, school, or community each quarter. Students use the class to collaborate on planning, executing, and reflecting on their events. Leadership students partner with other clubs like Octagon Club and Red Cross Club to support their events in any way. Our goal is to enrich the high school experience for all students by offering events to help Statesmen learn, change, and grow. By the end of the year, Leadership students develop the five traits of a Marshall 5-Star Statesmen: respect, honesty, responsibility, community, and spirit.

Bilingual Leadership Class

The mission of the Bilingual Leadership Class this year was to engage and involve ALL students, specifically from our ESOL community, in the various clubs and activities that Marshall High School has to offer. The class develops leadership qualities such as collaboration, team work, and public speaking skills. Ultimately, the students want to make a difference in the school and provide leadership opportunities to all.
