Wayne State College hosts annual leadership conference
WAYNE, Neb. (KTIV) -- Fourth through sixth graders from Northeastern Nebraska schools learned how to "fill buckets" today.
"You fill someone's bucket by saying nice words and not saying bad words," said Hugo Guorruer.
It was all a part of an elementary leadership conference, put on annually by Wayne State College's School of Education and Counseling.
This year, the school teamed up with the Region III Principal's Association and Haven House, a non-profit organization that provides services to children who have undergone domestic violence and sexual assault.
A speaker from the Haven House also talked to the students about what "bucket filling" means.
Event coordinator, Sherry Dorman, expressed the impact she hopes the children will make in the lives of others after today's presentation.
"That they will become change makers in their world. That they will refuse to stand by and watch somebody hurt or bully somebody else," said Sherry Dorman.
Students also filled bags with stuffed animals, snacks, books, and other supplies to be given to the children at the Haven House.
Organizers say gifts like this go along way for kids looking for a little comfort during troubled times.
