KSLA training day theme is opportunity

“Opportunity. That is what Batesville High School Kiwanis Student Leadership Academy students and Key Club officers were given Feb. 3 during their annual leadership training day,” reports member Ben Kick. There were 31 KSLA members and five Key Club members from Batesville High School in attendance.

The day began with the students’ arrival at Hillenbrand Inc./Batesville Casket Co. headquarters. The first speaker, Hillenbrand Inc. CEO Joe Raver, detailed how opportunity is integral to success. His lecture covered how the young students must reach for the opportunities presented, and prepare for success in their everyday lives. Finally, he concluded how, by making opportunities for others, the students would be making opportunities for themselves.

Next, Dr. Ed Negovetich discussed having goals in order to succeed. “He detailed how goals must be within the reach of the student, but also push them out of their comfort zones, and to again reach for opportunity,” according to Kick. He also explained that hard work pays off, but it is also good to have recreation in one’s life. He challenged the students to learn from their mistakes, and to treat their team with respect.

The young leaders were then given time to work on their community projects and decide how to further their progress based on the speakers’ speeches.

Attendees were then addressed by Chris Lowery, who noted the success of Hillenbrand Inc. and the intention to incorporate students in the company’s future. Continuing with the theme of opportunity, they learned more about Hillenbrand Inc. through his presentation. Boarding company buses, the students then enjoyed a tour of the Batesville Casket Co. manufacturing plant. “Many were enthralled that an industry like this could exist in Batesville and continues to thrive after decades,” Kick said. Donning safety glasses and looks of wonder, the students toured through the various stages of producing and painting the caskets, along with how they are stored and transported.
