One goal educational systems across the world seek to achieve is bringing up individuals who will be at the forefront of decisions that will result in positive changes in policies all around the world. It seeks to imbed in students qualities that make an individual a great leader and prepare them to overcome obstacles that may arise during the administration of their duties.
To ensure this is achieved, one thing which is evident in various schools is the establishment of student leadership bodies.
Heads of schools and teachers could have easily taken on certain roles and even gotten the job done most efficiently but that would also mean having students who’d have no experience of being decision-makers, good people managers, and working with others to achieve a common goal.
The establishment of student leadership bodies over the years has help raise leaders who are thrill blazers in their line of work and are making a difference wherever they find themselves. They’ve had several achievements and broken records thanks to the confidence and pieces of training they went through especially as leaders in school.
Several Ghanaian celebrities held leadership positions in schools and this has been evident in their achievements so far and their growth as individuals. It cannot be denied that their experiences as student leaders have played major roles in their lives one way or the other.
A few of these celebrities and the positions they held in school are listed below;
