Lincoln student completes prestigious national leadership program

Coronado High rising freshman Katie Kimberlin is already getting a jump on her leadership skills and community service activities.

The former Lincoln Warrior is among 69 students from throughout the state who successfully completed membership in Education in Action’s 2019-20 Lone Star Leadership Academy Alumni Council for the second year. Lincoln principal Haidi Appel nominated Katie for the program and has seen how it has allowed her to grow as a leader.

“Katherine Kimberlin is an amazing student.  She exemplifies everything we would want to see in a student especially at our IB campus,” Appel said. “She has a heart of gold and really cares about people and the world around her.”

Katie received training at the organization’s Lone Star Leadership Academy summer camp, then created the Warrior Cheer Camp service project to benefit children in her community.

“This project was chosen as a fun activity to expand on our current skills and to inspire the students at Mitzi Bond Elementary to want to join the cheer team at the new Don Haskins School,” said Katie, who will made Coronado’s JV cheer team. “It was also a great way to expand our leadership skills and celebrate the last of the Lincoln Warriors with the future Sun Bears, as our campus will be changing from a middle school to a K-8 campus next year.”

The two-day cheer camp was developed with two of Katie’s cheer teammates from Lincoln Middle School. Together, they taught the elementary students how to warm-up and stretch, different cheer motions, a cheer and a dance. The camp culminated in a final performance.

“The girls are amazing,” said Bond teacher Cristy Dore. “They’re so patient and great teachers.”

Katie had planned to become a Youth Facilitator at a Lonestar Leadership Camp this year but with COVID-19 cancelling the summer camp, she hopes to take on the role next summer and continue developing her leadership skills.

“The program has helped me learn my strengths as a leader and how to overcome challenges with teamwork,” she said.

Pet project gives Lincoln student admission to Texas leadership program

Incoming eighth-grader Katie Kimberlin is among 72 outstanding student leaders from throughout the state who earned membership in Education in Action’s 2018-19 Lone Star Leadership Academy Alumni Council.

The Lincoln student received a certificate of merit for her dedication to developing her leadership skills and for her service to the community.

As part of the program, Katie created the service project called “Have a Heart, Help a Pet” that benefits the Humane Society of El Paso.

She enlisted the help from her National Junior Honor Society peers to collect a goal of 50 items for the agency, but the group exceeded expectations bringing in 102 items.

“This experience has allowed me to identify my personal interests, strengths and values,” she said. “I have also learned how to be adaptable and creative because many of my service project plans changed throughout the course of the project. Although there were challenges, I was able to overcome them and successfully complete my service project, which exceeded my original goal.”

Katie participated in a week-long Lone Star Leadership Academy summer camp last year and received leadership training during the school year.

“I am looking forward to attending the Lone Star Leadership Academy this summer in Houston/Galveston and plan on participating in the Alumni Council again next school year,” she said.

“The skills I learned over the last year will help me develop an even more successful service project next year.”
