This week’s #LeaderBear was one of our many students that participated in the first ever LeaderShape Institute at Missouri State.
Timothy “Scott” Steelman is majoring in Special Education and expects to graduate in 2019. He has been very involved and one of the biggest involvements Scott is proud of is Advocates for Disabilities (A4D), an organization that started this past semester. This organizations gives opportunity for anyone to be member, regardless of a disability or not. Currently, Scott has a petition in process for keeping regular incandescent lightbulbs. If you would like to learn more about the cause and sign the petition, you can find it at the Facebook page – “Continuance of Incandescent Light Bulbs Petition”.
When asked how our leadership programs, specifically the LeaderShape Institute, impacted Scott, he replied by saying:
“The Leadershape program impacted me the most by teaching me leadership skills that I can carry and use with me forever.”
Scott’s advice for younger students looking to get involved is:
“One bit of advice that I would give younger students is that it is never too late and never too early to become a leader.”
