Hardin-Simmons student leaders took part in HSU’s first Leadership
Summit to prepare and encourage them for the upcoming school year. Students met
for five days to brainstorm new ideas and to gain leadership lessons from several
HSU faculty and staff.
Kit Rhea, senior education major from Houston, said, “Our
campus organizations keep and engage students at HSU. I am thrilled that we are
giving them proper time and guidance to prepare for the year before school even
Over 40 recognized groups had representatives on campus to
spend hours planning and working to find better ways to be leaders on campus.
Ashley Wiggins, junior accounting major from Charlotte,
North Carolina, said, “I’m excited for the leadership summit because I get to
spend time with my Alpha Phi Omega brothers, a service fraternity on campus, and
figure out how to be better leaders for the year.”
Wellness Director for Hardin-Simmons University was the event organizer. “Within
Student Life at HSU, we realized that many of us spend time training our
students for their leadership positions separately,” said LeRoux. “By putting
all of our efforts toward one comprehensive Leadership Summit, all of our student
leaders could attend together and give each group time to spend planning and
team-building among themselves, and also together as one group.”
This year’s event
was very successful and HSU is proud of the progress and team building that our
student leaders have made.
