The purpose of Harding’s leadership council is to:
- Represent students and their ideas at Harding Middle School and in the Cedar Rapids community
- Promote high standards of citizenship and study
- Promote friendliness and cooperation between students and staff
The leadership council exists as a service organization that endeavors to serve and donate funds to worthy causes. In addition, the leadership council may make recommendations and suggestions to the principal and/or general staff.
Students who wish to serve on the leadership council are recommended by their teachers. The recommendations are reviewed, and representatives are selected based upon individual scholarship, work ethic, attendance, motivation, and ability to work with others.
