Contingent Attends JSEA Diversity Leadership Conference

Posted: December 17, 2012

A contingent of seven students and two alumni advisors represented the Bellarmine community at the Jesuit Secondary Education Association (JSEA) Diversity Leadership Conference. The conference, which was held in Seattle November 10th and 11th, focused on unity and ways to create it.

David Aguilar '14, Adrian Delgado ’14, Ben Gebrat '15, Michael Kim '13, Isaac Madrid '14, Agustin Jaimes Moreno '14 and Pedro Sanchez '14 joined alumni advisors,Troy Heisman ‘08 and Julian Howard '08, at the second annual conference which took place at Seattle Preparatory High School and Seattle University, both Jesuit institutions.

Jesuit schools from the western region came together to discuss and learn ways to unify their school communities. From presentations, guest speakers, group conversations, interactive learning tools and conversations over meals, the students developed proactive ways to create unity back at their communities. It is with this experience that our students are now working toward taking what they learned in November and manifesting it among the Bellarmine community.

The opportunity to connect with conference attendees and focus on a shared concern was an “experience (that) really helped me grow as a person." said Ben Gebrat. Michael Kim added "Getting to see an unknown part of an unknown culture was very exciting. If we could bring all those hidden elements out on our campus, we could truly be a tapestry of many colors.”
