Spring 2016 Leadership Film Series - April 6, 2016

We are excited to present the Spring 2016 edition of the Leadership Film Series on Wednesday, April 6, 2016 at 4:45 p.m. (dinner will be served beginning at 4:30 p.m.) in the LBJ Student Center, room 3-15.1. We will be screening the classic coming of age baseball film, The Sandlot. This film, directed by David M. Evans, chronicles the story of a new kid in town who is taken under the wing of a young baseball prodigy and his team over the course of an adventure-filled summer.

Join us as we screen the film, followed by a discussion of lessons in leadership and earn points toward the Medal of Hope and the GOLD BOOK! This will be a great opportunity to revisit a favorite film from your childhood, or catch the cult classic for the first time!

If you are interested in attending, be sure to RSVP. This event will be limited because we are serving dinner.

About the Leadership Film Series

The Leadership Film Series provides an opportunity for students to watch movies which reveal aspects of leaders appearing throughout the history of cinema. Screenings are free and open to any member of the Texas State community.

The Leadership Film Series offers an opportunity to observe leadership in action and relate it to one's own leadership style. Following each film, a panel of students, faculty, and staff will engage the audience in a discussion of the film's leadership lessons and implications. The goals of the series include: 
  • exploring what ethical leadership means to different people in different historical periods,
  • critiquing leadership qualities of characters found in popular and historical films, and
  • identifying leadership strategies that result in positive social change either locally and/or globally.
If you have a suggestion for a film or would like to get involved, please email us at leadershipinstitute@txstate.edu.
