Holden Middle School and Holden High School students attended the MSHSAA Sportsmanship Summit in Nixa, MO. Both schools have been awarded the 5-Star Leadership School Banner. Holden is one of a small few that have been awarded this award. The program is designed to create a character-driven athletic and activities program, one student, one parent and one coach at a time. At the summit, students gained experiences that show how school activities can provide a venue for leadership development and character building as well as foster a sense of belonging and self-worth.
