Robin Blake, Joseph Harris Jr. and Kristine Janis were recognized for not only completing the minimum steps toward induction, but for going above and beyond to achieve the National Engaged Leader Award. These Society members participated in additional Society programs and community service events to receive this special honor.

To be eligible for the leadership development program, students must have completed 30 credit hours and maintained a minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA. Once inducted, the students are required to remain enrolled in a minimum of six credit hours each semester. 90 HCC students have been inducted since the Society’s inception in Fall 2015.

NSLS operates under the theme “Building Leaders Who Make a Better World” and represents the nation’s largest leadership development honor society. With 586 chapters, the Society currently has 804,581 members nationwide www.societyleadership.org.

“The program gives our students access to high-quality leadership development materials,” stated founding NSLS Chapter Advisor and HCC Career and Transfer Coordinator Kanya Allen. “The materials include leadership training videos, six annual speaker broadcasts, orientation workshops and a valuable leadership development curriculum.”

According to HCC Dean of Student Affairs Dr. Jason Warren, the college formed the local NSLS chapter in 2015 after consulting with multiple community colleges in other states. “NSLS helps us develop student leaders who are inspired to get involved with groups such as Student Government Association (SGA) and one or more of HCC’s 22 active student organizations on campus,” Warren added. “Some even go on to gain acceptance in to the official honor society of two-year colleges nationally, Phi Theta Kappa (PTK).
