HEAD OF THE CLASS: COLLEGE OF HUMAN ECOLOGY SELECTS THREE FOR ELITE LEADERSHIP CAMP

MANHATTAN -- Three College of Human Ecology students at Kansas State University have been selected to attend Leadership Honors Bootcamp, May 21-26, in Washington, D.C.

At the camp, students from around the country learn leadership skills and training.

K-State students selected to attend are Edmond Rivera, junior in nutritional sciences, Dodge City; Sarah Works, junior in general human ecology and political science, Humboldt; and Ruddy Yanez, sophomore in family studies and human services and Spanish, Tribune.

The College of Human Ecology fully funds the students.

The five-day intensive program offers participants a personalized assessment of their leadership skills and then provides them with the tools for empowerment to lead virtually any group. Sessions focus on understanding the dynamics of group behavior, becoming an intentional leader, developing as a leader and putting new leadership skills and strategies to work.

The curriculum was developed by Rod Napier, a former Wharton School Fellow and an executive coach who has written books on leadership.
