MCC student leadership society inducts 48 new members

FLINT — The Mott Community College (MCC) chapter of the National Society of Leadership and Success (NSLS) Sigma Alpha Pi chapter, inducted 45 new members for the Fall 2020 Semester.

Sigma Alpha Pi is for students with a 2.7 GPA or higher, who have completed nine credits, and are enrolled for the Fall or Winter Semester at MCC.

Membership requirements include completion of an orientation, a leadership training day, three speaker broadcasts, and three Success Networking Team meetings.

Some of the lifetime benefits members receive are scholarship opportunities, discounts on products, success coaching, and access to a job bank.

This Fall 2020 semester was the first time the group met entirely online, and while it had its challenges, it was definitely rewarding, said Dawn Vanniman, staff adviser to the group. “Some members were dealing with virtual work, college, their children’s virtual school, and more. Thirteen of our newest inducted members are also dual-enrolled high school students, so they had high school requirements, college classes, NSLS, and often sports/jobs/clubs on top of all that. We are very proud of all of our new members!” said Vanniman.

The Fall 2020 inductees were:

Aminata Keita, Burton; Alexus Dortman, Faith Simonye, Grace Webb, Mackenzie Lamrock, Morgan Simmonds, Morgan Koop and Tanner Walker, Davison; Abagail Eason, Jordan Freeman Graham, Justin Roe, Pierce Taylor and Thomas Wong of Flushing; Crystal Cook, Kaitlyn Rusinek, Riley Robinson and Sophia Sakalis, Grand Blanc; and Jillian Sloan, Swartz Creek. — G.G.
