Meet the March 2014 Students of the Month

On-Campus Student: Tyler Hayes

Tyler Hayes is a senior from McCook, Nebraska, who is working toward a major in Organizational Leadership and a minor in International Studies. He decided to get involved with the Department of Leadership Studies through his research before visiting campus. After he visited campus and met the faculty, he knew it was a good fit. He is involved in the Wooster Place Community Council and is treasurer for Student Veteran's Association. Currently, Tyler's favorite Leadership class is LDRS 450: Advanced Leadership Behaviors. Tyler said, "We had a great group in this class and the interaction made the class! Our instructor was able to keep us engaged as a class and I think we all understood the material at the end." In his spare time, Tyler enjoys technology and explains, "I have to try and stay up with the latest developments" he also enjoys "trying to stay in shape."

Virtual Student: Victoria Antle

Congratulations Victoria!

International Student: Mingwei He

Mingwei He is a sophomore from Harbin, China, who is working toward a degree in General Studies. When asked why Mingwei chose to get involved with Leadership Studies, she explained, "I have never heard of Leadership in China but I feel it's important no matter which area you are involved in, thus I'd like to know more about it." Her favorite class so far has been LDRS 300: Introduction to Leadership Concepts with Dr. Christie Brungardt. Mingwei said that Christie "made the theory more vivid and impressing" which attracted her to "explore it deeper and deeper." In her spare time, Mingwei says she "enjoys taking a walk with light music under the sunshine." She especially enjoys walking on the streets of Hays because it allows her to feel closer to the city. She also enjoys doing volunteer activities for another way to be involved in the community. Mingwei explains she volunteers because "(she) likes to know and feel more about the place where (she) is living."
