(NASHUA, NH) – Victory Academy has kicked off the academic year with a bang! In the month of September, the Victory team is proud to partner with eight prestigious institutions. Each partnership is unique and the design of each academy varies by school. The Victory team has worked with student leaders, emerging leader student-athletes, athletic captains and coaches. Engaging sessions have already been held at Connecticut College, Wentworth Institute of Technology, Lawrence Academy, Westfield State University, Bishop Guertin High School and Brown University.

While various different workshops have been conducted, one theme is constant: All students are challenged to build a foundation for leadership. Each program exposes students to leadership traits of business, athletic, and community leaders. Students work with, and learn from, experienced professionals and former collegiate athletes. With this foundation, participants learn to maximize their potential and realize their responsibility to influence others on their teams, in their classes and throughout their communities. The academies also focus on helping students understand key steps to effectively lead teams and build seasonal action plans. Students leave feeling prepared, inspired and committed to leading themselves and their teams to greatness.

Victory Academy Engagements in the month of September include:

  • Connecticut College
  • Wentworth Institute of Technology
  • Lawrence Academy
  • Bishop Guertin High School
  • Westfield State University
  • Brown University
  • Babson College
  • Pingree School

Kristen Kjellman Marshall, Associate Partner at Velocity Performance and Executive Director of the Victory Academy, is thrilled about the active fall season. “Our vision at the Victory Academy is to build young leaders. We recognize that a leadership void is being created, and we must help fuel a new generation of leaders. Through my athletic and professional experience, I am excited and honored to make an impact on hundreds of students, this month alone. They are our future leaders. I’m greatly looking forward to the programs ahead and the impressive students I get the privilege to meet,” said Marshall. “Personally, I am committed to bringing my energy, leadership & inspiration, as I aim to propel them towards their own success.”
