03/23/21 – Nominations for KHSAA Student Advisory Group/NFHS National Student Leadership Summit Now Being Accepted

March 23, 2021 Athletic Department Blog Updates


The KHSAA is seeking applications to become a member of its Student Advisory Group.  One of the main duties of the group is the planning and execution of its HYPE Student Leadership Conferences.  Those chosen attend the NFHS National Student Leadership Summit in July and then manage the KHSAA HYPE Conferences.  

The National Federation of State High School Associations offers a student leadership initiative – the National Student Leadership Summit (NSLS). The NSLS will focus on relevant and contemporary issues affecting today’s students in education-based athletics and performing arts. Students will sharpen their leadership skills and will realize the privilege and power of their influence in their school, community, and state.

At this time, the NFHS is planning on an in-person Summit scheduled for July 20-22, 2021 in Indianapolis.  If selected, expenses from Lexington to Indianapolis are covered (meals, lodging, transportation).  By applying and being selected, the student is acknowledging that he/she will be in attendance (in-person, virtual) for meetings leading up to and including both conferences.

Please complete the nomination form for consideration of being a member of the group by April 19, 2021.  For questions about the program contact Association Commissioner Butch Cope ( or Assistant Commissioner Sarah Bridenbaugh (
