Meet the October 2015 Students of the Month

On-Campus Student: Shelby Stewart

Shelby is an Organizational Leadership major from Hill City. This is her junior year at FHSU. On campus Shelby is on the Leadership Team and is a LifeGroup Leader for Encounter- a college ministry. She also is a VIP Student Ambassador and the Student Marketing Coordinator for the Department of Leadership Studies. Shelby decided to get involved with the Department because its degree is very diverse and can fit into many career paths. She loves the flexibility and skills it offers for her future. So far, LDRS 450, Advanced Leadership Behaviors has been her favorite because it involves a lot of self-reflection and applying material learned into her life as a follower and as a leader. Through all of her Leadership classes, Shelby has found herself looking at situations differently and her eyes have opened to how the information that she has been taught is used in organizations and everyday life. Outside of school and work, Shelby likes spending time with her family and do things outside like horseback riding, fishing, boating, riding on 4 wheelers, and hiking.

Virtual Student: Robert Neuman

Robert is from Mystic, Connecticut and is in his final year of school perusing a Master's of Professional Studies in Organizational Leadership. Outside of school, Robert says, "spending time with my four awesome kids takes up most of my time." His oldest daughter is 7, he has 5 year old twin daughters, and a son who just turned 2. Besides spending time with them, he enjoys spending time outside, reading, and playing computer games. Robert decided to get involved with the department because he is an active duty Air Force Officer and wanted to hone his leadership skills. He chose Fort Hays because of the "outstanding graduate program and top notch reputation as a military-friendly school." His favorite class so far has been LDRS 811- Organizational Intervention Strategies. He really enjoyed working on a project for this class with a group of classmates. He says the projects made the class relatable/ applicable to everyday lives of the students. Robert says this experience was one of the most rewarding of his time as a Fort Hays student.
