This week’s #LeaderBear has been a great addition to our leadership programs! Rachel is an elementary education major who plans to graduate in the Spring of 2017. Her top 5 leadership strengths are communication, positivtiy, activator, inclusion, and WOO. Rachel has participated in our Distinction in Public Affairs program and was a selected scholar for our Centennial Leaders program for her freshman and sophomore year. She served as the 2015 Alpha Chi Omega Vice President of Philanthropy, where she was able to plan a 5K that raised over $1,800 for Harmony House. She was previously the Assistant Panhellenic Delegate for Alpha Chi Omega, as well as the Student Activities Council representative. She has been the captain of the Alpha Chi Omega Relay for Life team for the past 2 years. Rachel was a part of Phi Sigma Upsilon and served as a Centennial Leaders facilitator for Fall 2015.
When asked what part of our programs has impacted her the most, her response was:
“I have been able to learn ways to be more involved on campus, and use the leadership skills I have gained! I have also been able to meet so many wonderful people on campus, which helps to make Missouri State seem very small!”
When asked what advice she would give to younger students, her response was:
“GET INVOLVED! Find organizations that you are interested in and invest. You will never regret getting involved in an organization because you gain so much from the experience. You meet new people, you are able to gain leadership experience, and make an impact on our campus.”
Thank you Rachel for your participation with community service and participation in our Centennial Leaders and Distinction in Public Affairs program! If you are interested in applying for Distinction in Public Affairs program, check out the application and apply by this Friday, December 4th!
