Our Middle School students had a great opportunity this week to take Gallup’s StrengthsExplorer assessment. Students from Miami University’s Buck Rogers Leadership Program led them through a workshop to explore their top themes or strengths. McGuffey students had a chance to ask the Miami students a wide range of questions about their own strengths, their majors and what kinds of activities they enjoy in college.

The Miami students facilitated a team marshmallow challenge that allowed our students to see how each of their strengths contributed to the process of building something together within certain restraints. Our time on campus culminated in a delicious lunch at Garden Commons on East Quad. (Apologies for the depletion of their fortune cookie inventory.)

We are grateful to the Buck Rogers leaders and Dr. Megan Gerhardt for providing this valuable experience to our adolescent students.
