CENTRAL ARIZONA COLLEGE HOLDS INAUGURAL INDUCTION FOR LEADERSHIP SOCIETY

by Angela Askey, Executive Director Public Relations and Marketing

In August 2018, Central Arizona College (CAC) established a chapter of the National Society of Leadership & Success (NSLS). By the end of the fall semester, 209 new members had joined. Ninety-one students completed the program and received a Certificate of Leadership Training honoring their achievement and lifetime membership in the NSLS.

The NSLS is the nation’s largest leadership society with 950,000 members representing 700 universities and colleges nationwide. In addition to honoring excellence, NSLS provides a systematic program for members to build their leadership skills through participation on their campus.

Nine CAC employees were recognized for their service to the campus and community. Honorary memberships were presented to Dr. Jenni Cardenas, Vice President for Student Services; Michelle Gomez, Academic Division Assistant; and Dr. Sandra Rath, Professor of Speech Communication. Honored for Excellence in Teaching were Dr. Liz Baroi (Professor of Psychology), Heather Moulton (Professor of English), and Fotini Sioris (Professor of Biological Sciences).
