Whatever we do, whatever our responsibilities are, each of us should be trying to make an impact by the actions we take. Ideally, impact promotes personal best through the appropriate challenges that accompany any responsibility. Purposeful impact should have a positive outcome for others
and not just the individual. Service is the TIS most frequently communicated form of impact that occurs on a daily basis at TIS.
Lydia Boahen, as the outgoing Head of Council, has certainly made a powerful impact during her tenure. However, I must point out that her impact was already evident since Lydia commenced at TIS in 2015. Her impact made her an obvious choice for her peers and other students to elect her as the 2020 Head of Student Council.
Lydia undertook her role as Head of Council with her usual poise, focus, clarity and a collaborative leadership style in which she demonstrated the importance of being a role model for others. Lydia’s impact has been enormous and always evident, especially during these COVID times. Lydia has certainly demonstrated all prerequisites for the prestigious tertiary scholarships available to exceptional school leavers each year. Thank you, Lydia. May your light always shine.
