 Calling all future House Impetus leaders! Are you interested in learning more about the inner workings of the House System? Are you crazy about the Gossage Cup? Are you a leader who hasn’t had the chance to shine at Cannon yet? This opportunity is for you! House Impetus is looking for 3 leadership interns (2 sophomores and 1 junior) for the 2013-14 school year. Interns will have the unique ability to learn about the new house system while helping their house leaders bring home this year’s Gossage Cup. Interns should be organized and have a go-getter attitude, but we are most interested in finding interns that exude Impetus’ motto – “Enthusiasm for Life.”If any of this applies to you, please e-mail Miss Kundel ( with your application. The application should be a 1 page, MLA formatted document that answers the following 2 questions. 1. Why are you interested in leadership? What specifically excites you about working in the House System? 2. What new ideas do you have for the House System? What unique abilities/traits/passions can you bring to the table? We look forward to hearing from you all by Sep.11.
