Milligan inducts 29 into leadership society

MILLIGAN COLLEGE, TN (May 7, 2013) — Last week, Milligan College inducted 29 new members into its chapter of The National Society of Leadership and Success, an organization that helps people discover and achieve their goals.

“The mission of this society is a good fit with Milligan because it encourages students to explore their gifts and talents and discover how they can be servant-leaders,” said Beth Anderson, director of Milligan’s Institute for Servant Leadership.

Students earning at least a 3.0 grade point average are invited pursue membership. After accepting the invitation, the students must complete several requirements, including a leadership training day. Candidates also attend three small-group gatherings throughout the semester and listen to nationally-known motivational speakers provided through a satellite feed.

“I like this organization because it makes sure the students have certain tools before they are inducted into the society,” Anderson said. “Milligan has great student leaders who guide prospective members through the steps. In October, we sent our officers to a conference and they came back with lots of ideas and enthusiasm to grow our chapter here at Milligan.”

The local inductees include Johnson City, Tenn., students Jennifer Berry, Natasha Carpenter, Tara Hubler and Emilee Kreutzer; Elizabethton, Tenn., students Hayley Minton and Kendall Wash; Gray, Tenn., students Sara Bernard and Sarah Bouch; Caitlin Brock of Jonesborough, Tenn.; Joshua Church of Unicoi, Tenn.; Lindsey Debord of Trade, Tenn.; Sterling Herron of Butler, Tenn.; Ashton Keen of Bristol, Tenn.; and Lillian McCall of Kingsport, Tenn.

Other inductees include Lindsay Ange, Helen Biard, Alexa Blevins, Whitaker Brown, Alexandra Glaize, Megan Guerra, Megan Hale, Angela Highfield, Elise King, Heidi Nyman, Jordan Price, Grace Shawley, Emily Smith, Sabrina Smithson and Samantha Smithson.
