Matthews Selected For Leadership Program

2019-2020 Wayne Community College Student Government Association President Logan Matthews

Logan Matthews, Wayne Community College’s incoming Student Government Association president, has been selected for a leadership program.

Matthews will participate in the North Carolina Community College System’s Student Leadership Development Program this year. She will attend a six-day session in Raleigh in June and two weekend sessions in the fall and spring semesters.

The sessions will provide training designed to make participants better campus leaders and community citizens, and provide a smoother and more successful transition into the workforce.

Miss Matthews also must commit to arranging or facilitating at least two workshops on the WCC campus or in the community.

She is one of just 30 students enrolled in the state’s community colleges who have been accepted into the program. She was nominated by college administrators.

The mission of the program is to enhance leadership quality for community college students and increase their knowledge of soft skills to prepare them for professional and civic responsibilities.

The summer session consists of workshops, speakers, and group and individual projects. The two mini-sessions extend leadership training through additional workshops and smaller projects, and a graduation banquet is held at the spring mini-session to celebrate the participants’ completion of the program.

“Over the past 18 years, our program has trained over 450 students by providing an avenue for select community college students to receive vigorous leadership training, and in turn, carry their experience and knowledge back to their campus and community,” said John “JJ” Evans, the  associate director of student life for the community college system.

Matthews said she is appreciative of the opportunity to work on her leadership skills. “I enjoy being involved and I want to continue to lead,” she said. “I would not know what to do if I wasn’t involved.”
