Servant Leadership: Leadership Styles in the Wild

This summer, students from the Class of 2020 embarked on a Summer Leadership Trip. Students and faculty traveled to Camp Manito-wish in Boulder Junction, Wisconsin, to navigate the Boundary Waters, build leadership skills, and grow as a school community dedicated to helping others.


Through the Servant Leadership program, myself, fourteen of my classmates, and 3 faculty members had the opportunity to go to Camp Manito-wish. We spent multiple days before going “on trail” doing activities which helped us find our style of leading. Not only did these skills help us on the trip, but they also are in constant use in my school life. Also, the trials that we through on trail pushed a lot of us to the edge, but it was well worth it. The only thing that I would have to say to any freshman that wants to go on this trip, is just go. There’s no reason not to go. It was the trip of a lifetime and I wish I could go again.  — David Jensen, Class of 2020


Some of my favorite memories from the trip is when me and my classmates made up our own game to play outside. It was a mix between soccer, basketball, football, and it was really fun! I also enjoyed the bonding time I had with teachers and classmates while it was pouring rain out, as we had great times and experiences in “bad” weather. While on the trip, I learned about what type of leader I was by doing an activity.  I learned that I like to drive things, being the one in charge who is goal oriented. I made it my goal to go out of my comfort zone and try different styles of leading, more focused on people in a group. After this trip, my view on servant leadership has changed and I am excited for what is to come!   — Tony Czajka, Class of 2020


We are so excited for the second year of our Servant Leadership program, where the class of 2021 will learn what it takes to be a good leader in our community and the class of 2020 will start working with mentors! Stay tuned to our social media for updates on this incredible program.

    On Tuesday, our school community celebrated the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe with a beautiful Mass planned and ministered by STM’s Latino Student Organization and World Languages department chair Mrs. Ann Marie Dorn. Padre Norberto Sandoval celebrated Mass with Father Christopher Klusman (TM ’95). After Communion, students in LSO performed a beautiful baile folklorico and baile Azteca. We are proud of all students for their months of hard work learning the dances, and extend special thanks to Mrs. Dorn for once again planning a wonderful Our Lady of Guadalupe Mass. ...
