STUDENT SPOTLIGHT: Student Success Leadership Conference

Submitted by Lauren Burgwyn, Director of Special Events & Conferences


They poured into the halls of The Founder’s Inn in Virginia Beach – 450 of the best and brightest students and advisors from Virginia’s Community Colleges – for a weekend of learning and fun at the 2016 VCCS Student Leadership Conference Nov. 11-13.

The agenda included sessions ranging from character building to entrepreneurship, as well as national speakers who provided perspective on the qualities of a leader, how to follow the spark of inspiration and the importance of giving back. Students put those topics to practice as they participated in a community service project for Stop Hunger Now and writing holiday cards for our troops overseas.

Mission-oriented, community service-minded and self-motivated: these students are the future of the Commonwealth.'
