Local Student Will Attend Leadership Training Program for Teenage Girls


Breanna Lalla, a freshman at Belleville High School, won the honor of attending the elite “Tri-State Leadership Conference for Teen Girls.” This Conference will give teenage girls a hands on training experience on how to help their community and the world.

 Breanna was nominated by her Belleville High School Guidance Counselor Mr. John Flynn because she is a student who demonstrates leadership, potential and academic achievement.

Mr. Flynn commented, “Breanna is an outstanding individual. Besides being an excellent student, she is both respectful and respected by the student body and faculty. Her commitment to improving the lives of those less fortunate than herself, as evidenced by assembling and distributing 200 sandwiches to the homeless in Newark this past December, is what I consider to be a remarkable act of kindness and compassion. Breanna is a wonderful role-model who is destined to leave her mark and make the world a better place.”

All female high school freshmen, sophomores, and juniors from New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut were eligible to apply to attend. From Belleville High School, Breanna had the honor of being the sole student that was nominated and awarded the opportunity to participate in this dynamic leadership training seminar.

The leadership conference will take place at The College of Saint Elizabeth in Morristown, New Jersey, from Friday, June 3rd to Sunday June 5th, 2016.

Breanna is ecstatic to attend. She said, “I am excited to attend the program and make new friends from other states. My goal is to enhance my leadership skills because I really want to improve the world we live in. This experience will certainly make me a better person.”
