Middle School Leadership Conference

Friday, October 25th 2019

9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Registration is closed for the 2019 conference.
Registration will close Sunday, October 20th at midnight.

This conference will be led by a select group of current Gibbons students, grades 9-12, who have demonstrated outstanding leadership qualities and willingness to serve the school and community in faith, service, and leadership. Our team has organized a one-day conference that explores the definition of leadership, the skills and qualities of leaders, core values, and how students can exemplify these skills through their leadership in the middle school community.  Our hope is to spark the growth of leadership in our Catholic middle schools and instill new skills that those students who attend can then share with their school community when they return.

MLC Vision

Through the Middle School Leadership Conference, current Gibbons students use the leadership skills they have learned at Cardinal Gibbons to help cultivate and develop leadership in middle schools throughout the Diocese of Raleigh.

Parent Engagement Session (CGFA)


This year we will also be offering a parent social and session on parent engagement, hosted by the Cardinal Gibbons Family Association. They will be offering a light breakfast in addition to a session from 9-11:15 am. They will also offer lunch from 11:15-12:00 PM. You can sign up for any of these opportunities on your child’s registration form.

Cardinal Gibbons High School is not responsible for transportation to and from the conference. the conference will begin at 9:00 am. Please keep in mind that there are 1400 students at Gibbons and the school day starts at 8:05 a.m. The carpool line can be very crowded around 8:00 a.m.! In an effort to avoid parking lot traffic in the afternoon, the conference will end at 2:00 p.m, and we ask that you please make plans to pick your child up at that time. Due to limited parking during school hours, please refrain from parking and walking your child into school. All parking spots are assigned and we do not want a teacher's or student's spot taken, or spots reserved for parents attending the engagement session from 9-10. Conference drop off and pick up will be at the front of the school.
