Oxford, Mississippi (March 28, 2018) — On March 21, 2018 seventy-three student athlete leaders from across the state ascended on The Muse Center in Pearl to attend the second annual Mississippi Leaders In Training (MLIT) Conference hosted by MHSAA. John Harvey and Olivia Rychlak, of Oxford High School, were among these students who were chosen to represent their school.

The main goal of Mississippi Leaders in Training (MLIT) and the annual conference, is for these future leaders to go back to their schools and communities with enthusiasm and excitement about leading in a positive manner to help better their communities and their state.

Don Hinton, Executive Director of the MHSAA said, "the day was filled with positive reinforcement of leadership qualities and traits that many of these students already exhibit. Through observation and casual discussion with several participants, it is a wonderful thing to know that our students are among the brightest and best in the country and are willing to accept the responsibilities and challenges that future leaders will face every single day. This gathering of highly-motivated students continues our goal of establishing leadership opportunities for the benefit of all of our MHSAA students for years to come.”
