We’re excited to announce that The National Society of Leadership and Success reached a monumental milestone over Labor Day weekend!
Meet the Society’s 500,000th member, Emily Rolling!
This week we would like to share a guest post by tutor and blogger, Julia Petersen. Julia has done the research and provided us with ten online resources she feels will take your writing to the next level and just might make it easier along the way.
Christine Pitts joined the National Office team in July 2015 as a Chapter Support Manager. We are proud to introduce you to a new Society staffer!
How would you describe your first month at the National Office, and what is your favorite part of working here so far?
I was told very often during my time as a graduate student that, “your first job will never be your dream job.” Working for the Society is my first job out of graduate school. While it may only be my first month at the National Office, I am fairly confident in stating that the people who told me that were dead wrong. The Society has been fun, exciting, and maybe a little scary, but I think that’s normal with any transition. I have never felt so welcomed and comfortable so quickly in a new position.

Congratulations to Global Leader Scholarship recipient Adanna Amaechi from the Society chapter at Montclair State University.
Adanna Amaechi grew up in Nigeria, where she witnessed the effects of corruption and substandard health-related services. That experience propelled her to study public health (with a minor in economics) at the undergraduate level so she could understand the correlation between inappropriate allocation of resources and barriers to development. Adanna’s career goal is to promote civic empowerment and engagement as an intervention to address social development challenges.
Shelby Liggett is a rising senior majoring in Radiologic Science at Avila University in Kansas City, Mo., and currently holds the Community Service Chair position for her Society chapter. As a result of being awarded the Student Leadership Program Grant, the Society was able to send Shelby to the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) Conference in New Mexico this year.
