NSLS Inducts New Members
The recently formed San Antonio
College chapter of the National Society of Leadership and Success (NSLS)
inducted 165 new members last week. The event was help on April 3 in the
McAllister Auditorium. Chuck Knippen, president of NSLS, delivered the keynote
During the event, Dr. Robert
Zeigler, president of San Antonio College, was given an honorary membership.
New chapter officers were also
installed. Barbara Josey will serve as the new president; Michael Elliot as
secretary; Zakiyah Ball, treasurer; Erica Makuk, SNT coordinator and Megan Cuda
will serve as the Community Service Chair.
The society invites students to
join based on a few things including GPA and time remaining in their degree
plan. There is a one-time fee of $85 to join. After joining, members
participate in an hour-long orientation and three-hour leadership training.
During their leadership training,
students are broken into Success Networking Teams, small groups of six to eight
students. The students then need to meet three times with their teams to
develop their own measurable, achievable goals. The groups provide team members
ideas for action steps for achieving their goals. Finally, students attend
three speaker broadcasts. Once all of these things are done, the member can be
officially inducted into the society.
The society is founded upon the
core beliefs that one can achieve one’s dreams with the proper support and
dedicated action, and that we accomplish more together than we would achieve
alone. The society’s sole purpose is creating lasting positive change.
What began with a handful of chapters, the
society now reaches tens of thousands of students at hundreds of chapters
around the world. The society encourages community action, volunteerism,
personal growth and strong leadership from its chapters and members around the
