Van Wert Middle School’s 8th grade Cougar Leaders visited with their community partner, Central Insurance Companies, on Wednesday, September 19th. Central’s President, Bill Purmort, spent over an hour with students discussing what leadership means and the qualities of a strong leader. The day ended with a question-and-answer session, engaging the students and allowing discussion amongst the group.
Central Insurance is an integral part of the VWMS 8th Cougar Leader program. As they enter their third year as community partners, Cougar Leaders can expect Central employees belonging to the Central Cares Committee to participate in a variety of events throughout the school year, including monthly student meetings, luncheons, and mock interviews.
