Meet the February 2012 Students of the Month
On-Campus Student: Jason Dreiling
Online Student: Sean Mahon
Sean is currently pursuing his Associates Degree at Fort Hays State University. He has obtained his Leadership Studies certificate virtually, as he lives in Coeur D’ Alene, Idaho. Sean’s favorite leadership class was LDRS 310: Field Work in Leadership Studies because he had the opportunity to get out and active in his community. He said that he “enjoyed meeting people and working on (his) collaboration skills.” He also enjoyed 310 because he could apply the theories and concepts that he learned in LDRS 300 and LDRS 302.
Sean chose to get involved with the Leadership Studies Department because his biggest goal in life is to continue learning and he was “interested in the new curriculum.” On the advice of Leadership Studies Instructor Brett Whitaker, whom Sean thanked, he chose to enroll in the Leadership Certificate program courses. His advice to current and future students is to use your resources—such as great advisors because they can help you out and be there for you if you need them. In his free time, Sean enjoys collecting sports cards and learning more about President Kennedy. He also enjoys spending time with his supportive family.
