About LSS

As part of our mission to prepare students to become responsible, educated citizens of the world, we endeavor to provide the opportunity for students to engage with leaders in our community who share their own knowledge and experiences such that they may educate, enlighten, empower and inspire the students to succeed.  The Leadership Speaker Series at BuffSci is the vehicle by which our students are able to connect with stakeholders from various professions and backgrounds.


Each of our distinguished speakers brings a unique message to students - with a method of delivery specific to the individual. Students are exposed to a variety of personalities, presentation styles and backgrounds. These community leaders offer insight to their personal histories, and enable our students to see that leadership can take on many different forms. And although no two presenters are the same, all of our speakers reinforce the culture of excellence and impress upon our students the importance of being responsible, competent, educated citizens of our diverse global environment.


Through this series, our students have been empowered and inspired by many notable guests with diverse backgrounds and professions.  A few of our distinguished speakers have included: US Attorney William Hochul; Dr. Donna Fernandes, Buffalo Zoo President & CEO; Dr. Julius Gregg Adams, Executive Director of the Educational Opportunity Center; and Mr. Robert Bennett, Chancellor Emeritus for the NYS Board of Regents.


We thank all of our guest speakers for their individual contributions to make the Leadership Speaker Series at the BuffSci a great success!!!
