Gift Creates Student Leadership Development Series

A $5,000 gift commitment from 1972 alumna Ann Patterson and Gary Patterson of Wichita, Kan., has created a series designed to introduce and instill leadership qualities to Truman State University students.

The Student Leadership Development Series will bring together representatives of the University’s 200-plus student organizations for development and training. The Series will consist of a plenary session presented by a renowned leadership development speaker, and breakout sessions, moderated by student leaders, to allow students to learn from each other on relevant leadership topics. The conference will culminate with a luncheon.

Skills developed while on campus will assist student organizations in becoming more effective, and begin a process to help student leaders ignite the life-long leadership development process.

The inaugural conference is planned for the fall of 2006. Members of the Student Alumni Council, with assistance from the Student Life and Advancement Offices, will plan and coordinate the conference.
