A select group of DC student-athletes participated in a nationwide leadership program called Desire To Lead this past fall. Created byJeremy Boone of Athlete by Design, this leadership program helps foster and develop the skills necessary to be a leader in the future.
The months-long program culminates with a capstone project completed by the Dassel-Cokato athletes and is a community service project that gives back to the communities. Strength and Conditioning Coach Amanda Berg stated "Our students raised money by each donating funds. Students then purchased $300 worth of food for the local food shelf."
Members of the Desire to Lead Program at DC are Carlie Tormanen, Paige Sullivan, Amelia Travis, Evelyn O'Brien, Addison Pettit, Lora Mayfield, Haydn Veith, Emmanual Johnson, Jacob Gnerer, Logan Kelly, Gaige Webb, Ben Smock, Mason Schroeder, Mason Ailie, Kyan Lynk.
