Twenty Fort Hays State University students earned certificates for completing the university's inaugural Leaderville Series.
The FHSU Center for Civic Leadership -- which was created to foster and promote the development of citizens and "citizen leaders" who will address and solve community problems -- planned and implemented the Leaderville Series. This effort was headed by Collegiate Leadership Development Coordinator Alisha Renberger, a Derby junior.
The Leaderville Series was created to promote leadership and help develop leaders on the campus of FHSU. It consisted of six training sessions, which dealt with a variety of topics geared towards college students. The topics included: Teambuilding, Motivation, Goal Setting, Time/Stress Management, Creative Problem Solving, and Personal Leadership Development. Various speakers from the college and the Hays community were invited to speak at each of the sessions.
