2016 Spirit of Leadership
Last fall, the Staley School of Leadership Studies celebrated "Leading Change" at its annual alumni and friends gathering, the Spirit of Leadership. Following the Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders hosted on our campus this summer, we celebrated the leadership occurring both locally and globally. The biggest recognition of the evening went to the recipients of the Michael C. Holen Leader-in-Residence Award, Shante J. Moore and Silvia Diaz de Moore. Named in honor of former dean Holen, this award recognizes outstanding individuals who are exercising leadership in a range of organizational, professional and civic settings.
