Two seniors attend Duquesne University Leadership Academy

Zachary Esch, '20, and Juliana Gahr, '20, both attended Duquesne University's inaugural Leadership Academy (DULA) over the Summer of 2019. They recently received their photo books from their experience! Over the week-long program, the students stayed on Duquesne's campus in the Honors dorm hall, Assumption Hall. 14 students participated in the program this year, representing a total of five Catholic schools and one public school. While the primary focus of the program was — of course — leadership, Esch and Gahr both agreed that the program presented themes of servant leadership and social justice. "Duquesne treated us like royalty," Gahr said. The group also got free time to explore the city, enjoying a day at Kennywood, and stops in various neighborhoods like dinner and bowling in Lawrenceville.
