I made my decision to come to Central Michigan University based off of the Leadership Advancement Scholarship (LAS) that I received here at CMU. LAS is a program unique to Central Michigan’s Leadership Institute. This is a scholarship given to 49 of the top leaders in the U.S. each year.
LAS is made up of students who are passionate about leadership and community service. We are the kind of people that you find always volunteering for any event that we possibly can. This is a very competitive program to get into and that doesn’t stop when we get here.
As a Leadership Advancement Scholar, we are given a protocol to fulfill within our years here at Central Michigan. Our protocol is full of classes, events, conferences, and speakers that will guide us to being the best leaders we can be. By the end of our protocol we will all be one class away from having a leadership minor.
Accepting the Leadership Advancement Scholarship was one of the best decisions that I have made in my life up until this point. In my short time here at CMU I have been posed with so many amazing opportunities.
