FLINT — Dawn Vanniman, of Columbiaville, and Kimberly Dolejsi, of Flint Township, have been selected to serve on the National Society of Leadership and Success’ National Advisory Board. Only 20 individuals are selected to this Board from among the 645 chapters across the country from two year and four year institutions.
“I’m honored to be named to the national NSLS advisory board because I believe in the work they do,” said Dolejsi. “We are creating leaders at the national level, which filters down to the local level. The work we’re doing on the Advisory Board is helping other chapters get started and create something incredible.”
Vanniman also said that working at the national level is a way to make a larger contribution, adding that working directly with students is her passion. “I love helping students discover that their purpose and passion can intertwine, they can succeed in what they love to do, and achieve more than they ever thought they could,” she said.
The NSLS Advisory Board provides insight on the Chapter side to make meaningful changes on features and services offered to the students. Some of the topics the Board will cover this year are significant areas of focus in higher education, leadership, membership service, and program development. Previous Boards reviewed and provided input for the Pillar program, the Chapter Leader Dashboard, and the Regional Leadership Retreat structure/content, among other initiatives.
The NSLS is the nation’s largest leadership honor society. Students are selected by their college for membership based on either academic standing or leadership potential. Candidacy is a nationally recognized achievement of honorable distinction. With 645 chapters, the NSLS currently has 945,696 members nationwide. — G.G.
