Hero Round Table 2019
On October 28 and 29, 2019 Howell Interact and other student leaders attended the Hero Round Table leadership conference. In this event, we witnessed many leaders from around the world, including other high school students, NFL star linebacker Greg Jones, and Impractical Joker Joe Gatto as they shared how they took on leadership roles in their community. We were inspired to change our community together in Interact Club.
