Leadership Lessons from Columbine and Beyond
Speaker Frank DeAngelis
“Our lives are not determined by what happens to us, but how we react to what happens; not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst and it sparks extraordinary results.” —Wade Boggs
The 1999 tragedy at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, redefined the nation. Frank DeAngelis, who retired as principal of the school in 2014 after 18 years, tells his story from the events through the aftermath. His presentation reveals the leadership lessons he learned in the focus of an international firestorm. Mr. DeAngelis’s honest, straight-forward account provides invaluable insights into managing the after-crisis with students, staff members, community members, and never-ending media attention. He’ll share how a positive attitude and a passion for his job allowed him to build a community that worked together for his kids—the students at Columbine High School. The takeaways from this presentation should be required reading for every leader in the nation. This event is sponsored by the Office of Mission Integration.
