Nineteen new members were inducted into the the Virginia Highlands Community College chapter of the National Society of Leadership and Success during a special ceremony held May 3.

Established in December 2014, the VHCC chapter now has 288 members. To become an inducted member, each student is required to complete an orientation session and leadership training day, then attended broadcasts from nationally known speakers who provide tips for success. As a final step, each student is assigned to a small group to set goals for future success.

The National Society of Leadership and Success each year helps students across the nation discover and attain their goals. The Society offers life-changing lectures from the nation’s leading presenters and opportunities for like-minded, success-oriented individuals to come together to cultivate success. The Society also serves as a powerful force of good in the greater community by encouraging and organizing action to better the world.

There are more than 730,000 students nationwide.

VHCC students recently inducted were: Kaitlyn Allison, Christina Booher, Emma Cox, Jessica Crisp, Kennette Crosswhite, Brianna Curtis, McKenzie Denton, Jeris Doane, Devin Gardner-Pafford, Matthew Grennell, Connie Hensley, Andrew Justus, Ashley Lapierre, Patrica Lee, Micahael Lopez, Jacqueline Morton, Jaclyn Radecki, and Natalie Ramirez.

Paige Kelly and Mark Wildman serve as chapter advisors on the VHCC campus.

Also during the ceremony, a number of awards were presented to VHCC employees for their support of NSLS activities. Dr. Stacy Thomas, Vice President of Instruction and Student Services, was presented with an honorary membership, Assistant Professors Tamara Lasley and JoAnn Price each were presented with Excellence in Teaching awards, and Veterans Officer Debbie Barrett was recognized for Excellence in Service to Students.
