Five Chancellor’s Honors Students (Mariah Beane, Michael Craig, Xylina Marshall, Erika Sanders, and Suzannah Ward) recently received financial sponsorships from the Honors & Scholars Programs to attend the Center for Leadership and Service’s LeaderShape® Institute beginning on May 10th until May 15th. This year will be the fifth year the “highly competitive and high selective” institute has been offered at UT. “The LeaderShape® Institute is an intensive and energizing six-day program committed to producing extraordinary results in an organization while also helping college students to develop a commitment to lead with a high level of integrity.”

“The opportunity to further understand and develop my leadership skills in a team setting is the primary reason why I am excited to attend the LeaderShape Institute.” -Mariah Beane.

“For me, the most exciting part of Leadershape is that I will get to learn about how to lead when I am out of my comfort zone. The Leadershape Institute and the Chancellor’s Honors Program at UT go hand-in-hand because, as honors students, we know that Leadership involves not only our hearts but also our minds.” -Suzannah Ward

“I know the LeaderShape Institute will help me tap into leadership skills that I never knew I had while building lifelong bonds with fellow future leaders; as Honors students, we have the responsibility to help the world around us, and to me, that means being as well rounded as possible in interpersonal skills, particularly leadership.” -Michael Craig
