The WMU LEAD Corp is a group of students dedicated to serving the Western Michigan University student community as a peer education and training team on leadership topics. Team members will increase their own knowledge of topics relating to leadership and will pass along that knowledge to other members of the campus community by facilitating the Fall and Spring Leadership Retreats, LEAD workshops and working with Emerging Leader Certificate participants. LEAD Corp members must have at least sophomore standing and a cumulative GPA of a 2.5 or higher.
My name is Mariah Shaffer and I am from Clinton Township, MI. I am majoring in Social Work and Criminal Justice and minoring in Alcohol Addiction Studies. I am involved in Alternative Winter Experience, Alternative Spring Break, LEAD Corp, Up Till Dawn and Eta Eta Sigma. I am facilitating the LEAD Series Workshop “The Art of Facilitation.”
I am a small town east sider from White Lake, Michigan. I am currently a second-year student at WMU studying Public Relations, with a double-minor in Non-Profit Leadership and Advertising and Promotions. On my journey to graduation in 2012 (fingers crossed) I am currently involved in several things. I am currently a LEAD Corp intern for 2011-2012, an avid member of Campus Crusade for Christ, a Big Sister with Big Brothers Big Sisters, and am an employee Bath and Body Works. In hopes of continuing to build my leadership experience that began my first-year as the president of a leadership organization on campus, it is my hopes that through LEAD Corp I will gain applicable leadership traits and experiences to take into my career field.
My name is Savannah Hill, and I'm from Harrison Township, MI. Currently I am a Business major, with a minor in Spanish. This year I was involved with Bronco Bash, I am involved in CAB, and next semester I hope to be involved in Spring Into The Streets again, and I am also involved with LEAD Corp. I am really excited to get people involved in learning about leadership and life skills
On average, 4-6 hours/week
