IAJHSC Introduces the IAJHSC Virtual Leadership Training Library

In an effort to carry on our training activities safely this year, we are going to provide them virtually, and you are invited to help us do that.  We want to recognize and take advantage of our wide advisor and student expertise and abilities. You will be able to score Honor Council Award Honor Points by helping the IAJHSC provide meaningful, learning videos for all IAJHSC members to access and use to improve their student council members' leadership skills.  So if you want to learn how to earn honor council points and add to the IAJHSC Leadership Training Library, watch the video below from IAJHSC Workshop Director Lisa Thompson to find out how!  Interested in creating a video workshop on your own to share with your fellow IAJHSC members?

2020-2021 State Theme:
Solve the Leadership Puzzle

Solve the Leadership Puzzl

The 2020 – 2021 District Representatives have chosen the new IAJHSC state theme for the coming year. Meeting several times over Zoom and working together through group chats, the District Representatives developed twenty-two different theme choices using brainstorming techniques and the “keep” or “scratch” method of narrowing those choice down. Following the selection of “Solve the Leadership Puzzle,” they used the same techniques to choose the final logo from five graphic choices they collectively submitted.

The logo was developed by using the ideas that it represents the leadership characteristics and values of perseverance, dedication, cooperation, good judgment, optimism, and being goal oriented and dependable. The District Representatives thought that all these traits and skills were necessary to complete a puzzle as well as to become a great leader. They will be sharing those thoughts more thoroughly with everyone throughout the coming year and hopefully, at convention in April of 2021.




Upcoming IAJHSC Events & Deadlines At-A-Glance


Join us the first Thursday of each month at 7:00pm on Zoom for an informal discussion on various leadership topics, the sharing of ideas, and an open forum discussion. The Zoom link was emailed to each advisor.

So What’s Next?

July 3rd, 2020  |  Posted by admin

Greetings, Fellow Covid Captives!

First and foremost, I sincerely hope all of you are surviving the challenges of our new daily and ever-changing routines and procedures as dictated by this horrible pandemic due to the coronavirus. The Executive Board and I heartily encourage you to practice your leadership skills, set the example, and keep a positive attitude as we all tackle this new normal in our lives and the lives of those we lead. Masks, hand sanitizer, and washing your hands are such small things to do in order protect the people you love, cherish, and lead! Success will only be found when everyone works together to keep everyone else safe.

As you know, the IAJSHC Executive Board had to cancel the Annual IAJHSC State Convention and the IAJHSC Summer Leadership Camp for health and safety reasons. We were as disappointed as all of you must have been, but there is nothing we do more important than the safety of our members.
