Kennedy Men’s Leadership Academy students go snowboarding

Men's Leadership Academy

Students in John F. Kennedy High School’s Men’s Leadership Academy enjoyed snowboarding over Spring Break, a trip sponsored by Sacramento Police Department and Sacramento County Probation.

“The weather made the trip more challenging with a steady snowfall all day, but I think it added a unique experience for the young men that went to the snow for the first time,” says School Resource Officer Adam Feuerbach, one of the chaperones.

The excursion was funded by the Sacramento Police Foundation.
