Surrounded by roughly 200 friends, family and supporters, 67 Southwestern Community College students became the first group inducted into Southwestern’s newly formed chapter of the National Society of Leadership and Success on Feb. 18.

The society aims to help students discover and achieve their life goals and leadership potential.

“We’re extremely proud of all the founding members of our new leadership society,” said Dr. Phil Weast, dean of student services at SCC.

“These inductees have attended lectures from some of the nation’s leading presenters," Weast added, "and have become part of a community where like-minded, success-oriented individuals come together and help one another succeed.”

To become inducted, each student must hold a 3.00 GPA and participate in leadership training, work with fellow members and attend at least three speaking events.
