Nearly 50 participants benefitted from a recent free event held at the Paul D. Camp Community College Regional Workforce Development Center. The college’s office of student activities and Student Government Association hosted a leadership workshop that focused on parliamentary procedure. The members of Franklin-Southampton (VA) Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. partnered with the initiative that was themed “I am able… leading with confidence, competence, and creativity.”
 
According to PDCCC Student Activities Coordinator MeChelle Blunt, the event was very engaging and beneficial to aspiring and current leaders. The participants attended breakout sessions facilitated by professionals that served in leadership capacities in education, business and the military. “The students were captivated, motivated and educated,” she said. “This was an opportunity to enhance the development of student leaders.”
 
Mr. Jordan Hewett, science club president and honor society member, introduced the workshop facilitators. Mr. Anthony Holloway, SGA vice president, presented a video presentation to culminate the event.
 
“We were elated to have the local chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity take an active role in the workshop and encourage other local organizations to aid in strengthening the support given to our students leaders,” said Blunt. “Based on the feedback given, the activity exceeded the expectations of the participants and we hope to host a similar event in the future.”
