E Pluribus Unum, the motto included in the Great Seal of the United
States and meaning "from the many, one," has guided our nation since the
beginning. It serves double duty as a reminder of the important work that
your chapter can do to build one school from the many students, staff, and
organizations found on your campus. The articles and projects shared in
this edition of Leadership for Student Activities are designed to help define
the role that your chapter members and you, as the chapter adviser, play in
this important task.
"The Power of One" is this year's National Student Leadership Week (NSLW)
theme. Plan to celebrate during the week of April 19-25. Our online resources
focus on ways to focus on the value of one student, one chapter, and one school
in all of your chapter's projects and activities during the year. Information is
available at www.nhs.us/nslw and www.njhs.us/nslw. Special NSLW material-
including a pull-out poster!-can be found on page 15.
