This week’s LeaderBear had the opportunity to be one of six facilitators at Missouri State University’s LeaderShape Institute this past summer.
Dominiece Hoelyfield was raised in the town ranked #2 for successful singles; Bloomington, Illinois. She graduated from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale and Illinois State University with a Bachelors of Arts in Radio/TV and a Masters of Science in College Student Personnel Administration. Dominiece then brought her skills to Missouri State, where she opened the first LBGT Resource Center on campus and is a two time recipient of the Division of Student Affairs Award. She currently works as the Assistant Director for the Multicultural Center and Programs Coordinator for LGBT Student Services. Dominiece not only facilitated at our LeaderShape Institute, but she has played a facilitator role in our Distinction in Public Affairs program. Her strengths are Woo, Command, Ideation, Adaptability, and Futuristic.
When asked how our leadership programs impacted her, she replied by saying:
“Getting to know the students and how fabulous they are in leadership positions.”
Dominiece’s advice for younger students looking to get involved is:
“Teamwork makes the dream work!”
If you are interested in getting involved in Distinction in Public Affairs, applications will be available in October!
