Leadership for America

About LFA


If one seeks to lead others towards the good, both for the individual and for society, one must first strive for wisdom.  Leadership for America is an annual summer series that challenges high school students to ask big questions.  Each year LFA tackles a topic that is both relevant to man today, and to every man.  Throughout the week the underlying principles of leadership, based on the natural law, freedom of conscience, and democratic ideals, are studied in the light of Judeo-Christian values and revealed truths.

The annual lecture and film series, Leadership for America, is back for the summer of 2022!  Great leaders made a difference in their worlds. What would it take to make a difference in ours? What kind of preparation is needed to lead a country in times of division and turmoil? To understand more clearly the complexities and the challenges of great leadership, we will investigate writings and case studies from Homer, Plutarch, Aristotle, St. Thomas More, William Shakespeare, Abraham Lincoln, and St. John Paul II. As always, there will be daily mass and rosary, as well as excellent food, sports, and night game activities throughout the week.  Don’t miss out on this excellent summer leadership seminar!

Seminar Leader: Dr. Gerard Wegemer, professor at the University of Dallas for 34 years, is author of Thomas More on Statesmanship, Thomas More: A Portrait of Courage, Young Thomas More and the Arts of Liberty; editor of A Thomas More Source Book and The Essential Works of Thomas More.  Dr. Wegemer helped prepare the materials for St. Thomas More’s becoming “Patron of Statesmen” in 2000.
