JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – It wasall about leadership for hundreds of high school students at Arkansas StateUniversity as they learned valuable skills at ASU's Leadership Day.

Over 16 schools androughly 250 students from Missouri and Arkansas where at Tuesday's event.

Students took in sessionson anything from planning homecoming week, to time management, andunderstanding their leadership style.

Assistant Dean of Students Natalie Eskew says the event accomplishes two goals.  "We obviously want them to walk away withsome better leadership skills." Eskew said. "We also want them to be at ASU.  We hope we can show off our great universityand hopefully get them excited about attending ASU."

Walnut Ridge High School student EricWilcoxson says it's very helpful. "This is my second year here and we arelearning different leadership skills and how we can work as a team.  We can take ideas back to school and we canmake new friends." Wilcoxson said at today's event.
