We hope everyone had an amazing #BearsHomecoming! The events, the floats, all that Missouri State Pride! As much fun as the week was we’re glad to be back with a new leader bear spotlight! Meet this week’s #LeaderBear Spotlight Tim Wilkinson.
Tim is currently majoring in Entertainment Management and is expecting to graduate in 2019. His top five strengths are: Input, Discipline, Analytical, Connectedness, and Empathy.
Tim is an Emerging Leaders Program alum and since his time in the program, he has stayed heavily involved on campus. This summer he got to welcome new students to Missouri State as a SOAR leader.
He is a member of Entertainment Management Association and has served as their Treasurer and Secretary. Tim is also a member of Students Activities Council (SAC) where he has served as the Campus Events Chair, the May Day Chair and is currently the Concerts Chair. This fall, he was one of the Spirit Day Coordinators for the 2017 Homecoming Committee.

This is what Tim had to say about our Leadership Programs…
One of the most impactful parts of MOState Lead’s leadership programs is the exposure to fellow peers who are or will be leaders in their organizations. I met so many people that are now fellow leaders on campus and I am continually benefitting from those friendships. Also, being able to come into a space with students that think like you and are as passionate as you are is refreshing and gave me a place to grow in my leadership abilities.
Here’s some advice Tim has for younger students looking to get more involved…
Make sure to prioritize your health and well being. I always say that we must meet our human needs first before we can be student leaders. Nothing is worth putting your well-being at risk. Take a few minutes from each day to breathe, relax, think, journal, listen to music and/or exercise. If your cup is empty, how can you expect to pour into others?
