"Leaders Who Look Like Us" on display!

Lake Louise Elementary School just unveiled a very special project that has been in the works for several months.

"Leaders That Look Like Us" was a collaboration between Lake Louise administration, Harper College "LatinX" group, Art Teacher Michael Freitag and Lake Louise students.

It is difficult for students to aspire to leadership roles when don't see leaders that look like they do. As the saying goes, "If you can't see it, you can't be it."

Lake Louise wanted to change that, and offer students a look at leaders using the same demographics of the school's population as it's driving force.

The final product is this wonderful mural on display in the Lake Louise lobby, highlighting a diverse array of leaders serving important roles all over the world.
