This week our LeaderBear is the newest member of the Leadership Development team, Bethany Bishop. Bethany started this week as the Leadership Student Specialist. She will work this year with all of our leadership programs helping to plan and prepare for them, as well as assist in facilitating them. We are very excited to have Bethany on the team and know she will do a great job!
She recently completed the Centennial Leaders Scholarship program last year and also served as an RA in Hammons House. Over the summer she was a Conference Assistant in Res Life as well. She looks forward to continuing school and staying involved.
Bethany is currently a junior pursuing her Bachelor’s degreee in Health Services. She intends to graduate in 2016.
Her top strengths are: Achiever, Believer, Consistency, Relator, and Responsibility.
When asked what about our programs impacted her the most she replied,
“The connections that I made and the knowledge that I received made the biggest imprint on me. I have made so many friends and found many resources and people to go to in order to get the most out of my college experience and future. The skills I gained as a student leader through Centennial Leaders have taught me so much for the present and for what is yet to come.”
Her advice to younger students:
“My best advice would be to embrace the beauty and fun of life and opportunities. The world has a lot to offer and in order to get the most of it and succeed, it’s best to put yourself out there, take advantage, and try. Laugh, learn from mistakes and successes, balance your priorities and goals, make connections, and be confident!”
