Student Leadership

Student leadership is an honor and a responsibility open to all. Through an all-school ballot, students and faculty recognize a student’s abilities and talents in community and interpersonal relationships. Student leaders are juniors and seniors who possess traits of dependability, fairness, initiative, and trustworthiness. They show respect, good judgment and compassion, setting a good example for the rest of the student community.


Students involved in leadership positions are an active part of the Forman community and serve in various ways throughout the year. Below is a snapshot of each role with several examples of the numerous contributions made to Forman.
