On-Campus Student: Trent Russell
Trent Russell is a freshman from Baldwin City who is working toward a degree in Social Work and a Leadership Studies Certificate. Trent became involved with the department through his L3 (Live. Learn. Lead.) Learning Community. He said his favorite class so far has been Introduction to Leadership Behavior because, “the fun activities we do to make connections to what we are learning.” On campus he is involved in both the L3 Learning Community and Christian Challenge. His hobbies include hanging out with friends and playing guitar.
Online Student: Tena Green
Tena Green is an online student from Cleveland, TN. She is working toward a major in Leadership Studies and an MLS degree. Tena chose Leadership Studies because the administrative position that she is preparing for requires a master’s degree and the leadership program fit very well with the new responsibilities she would be taking on. Her favorite class so far is a tie between LDRS 800, 807, and 810 since she really enjoys learning about the theory, scientific method, and research endeavors of leadership that are built into the courses. Tena said, “Faculty allow for assignments to relate to our profession, and that is what has helped me solidify what I have learned from the texts and readings for those classes.”
Tena currently works as a respiratory therapist in the clinic and ER sections of a hospital. In addition to work and class her hobbies include traveling and swimming. Tena’s YMCA membership allows her to swim in both the summer and winter. Tena explained that traveling is in her blood She started when she was young and has been a traveler ever since and has visited every continent except Australia and Antarctica.
