This week’s LeaderBear is Reiner Gall and he is technically a LeaderPig now as well. He is now a Razorback after recently accepting a job at the University of Arkansas as the Program Coordinator of Registered Student Organizations. Reiner had a very big summer because on top of starting a new job and making a big move to a new state and school, he also got married to his college sweetheart Erica Rens.
Reiner graduated in the Spring of 2012 with his BS in Administrative Management and went on to complete his masters degree at Missouri State, graduating in the Spring of 2014 with his MS in Student Affairs in Higher Education.
As an undergrad, Reiner completed the Distinction in Public Affairs program and was very active in Fraternity and Sorority Life as a member of Theta Chi fraternity and serving as the FSL Student Specialist. While completing his Master’s degree he also served as the Graduate Assistant for SOFAC.
His top strengths are: Context, Harmony, Consistency, Analytical, Learner.
When asked what about our programs impacted him the most he replied,
“The opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the Public Affairs mission and also to see it exemplified in community projects. It was inspiring to see my group and the others sympathizing with public affairs issues and connecting with the community to address those issues.”
His advice to younger students:
“Get involved outside the classroom – everyone says it, but that’s because it is so important. But also, get connected with the community and serve. Helping others, combating society’s problems, expanding your knowledge, and contributing to your identity are just some of the benefits from being connected with your community and serving those around you.”
