SDSM& T LEADERSHIP HALL OF FAME INDUCTION TO BE HELD TONIGHT
- New Leadership Recognition Program Announced
The dawning of a new millennium has brought with it a new leadership recognition program for the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology: The Leadership Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame was created by the Leadership Development Team for the purpose of raising awareness on campus of the importance of student leadership and to recognize the many valuable contributions student leaders make. Tonight, March 30, 2000 the first Leadership Hall of Fame Induction will be held at the Alex Johnson Hotel. A reception will begin at 5: 00 pm, with the induction ceremony scheduled for 6: 30 pm.
This years inductees are Christopher Ahlers ( CENG, Pierre), Brianna Griffith ( Geol, Escondido, CA), Kenneth Harding ( ME, Rapid City), Cory Jensen ( CHE, Rapid City), and Angie Monheim ( MS EE, Rapid City).
According to Colleen Manning, the Chairperson of the Leadership Development Team, the Hall of Fame is intended to recognize students based on their contributions to our campus community, not necessarily for the leadership positions they have held. “ It’s not about how many leadership positions you can list on your resume. In fact, you don’t even need to have a formally recognized leadership position. This award is about making a difference,” Manning said.
Any full- time student at SDSM& T, who is in good academic and disciplinary standing, is eligible to apply for induction to the Leadership Hall of Fame. Applications will be reviewed by an anonymous committee of students, faculty and staff, appointed by the Director of the Surbeck Student Center and the Vice President and Dean of Students. Each year up to 6 students will be selected for this honor.
At the induction ceremony, hosted by the Leadership Development Team, in addition to receiving a personal award, each inductee will have their photograph included in a composite frame that will be displayed in the Surbeck Student Center, creating a literal “ Hall of Fame”.
