On behalf of Director of Alumni Relations, Ms. Laura Lotz '95, Whitfield School is pleased to announce the selection of the Glassman Leaders for the 2024-2025 academic year: Kamiyah Jones '27 and Kayla Sellers '27. These exceptional students embody the spirit of leadership, dedication, and excellence that the Glassman program seeks to foster.

Kamiyah has demonstrated her leadership abilities through her involvement in various extracurricular activities, including dance, Cooking Club, Student Council, and the Black Student Union. Her recent completion of coursework with the University of Missouri St. Louis (UMSL) Bridge Program reflects her commitment to academic excellence and personal growth.

Kayla has shown remarkable dedication as a multi-season student-athlete, balancing her coursework with her participation in the golf, basketball, and soccer teams. Her ability to excel both academically and athletically is commendable and serves as motivation to her peers.

The Glassman Leaders program, established by Whitfield alumnus Robert Glassman ‘02, aims to empower emerging upper school student leaders with essential leadership and public speaking skills. It is currently in its fourth year. Through this program, Kamiyah and Kayla will have the opportunity to participate in a Dale Carnegie leadership course, followed by additional public speaking coaching from Whitfield faculty and staff. This unique partnership with Dale Carnegie provides our students with invaluable opportunities to develop confidence, communication skills, and leadership abilities.

Please join Whitfield in congratulating Kamiyah and Kayla on being selected as the Glassman Leaders for the 2024-2025 academic year!
