My St. Lawrence Experience: St. Lawrence is a wonderful community, and this community feel is clearly present in the graduate program. Graduates of the leadership program have a strong presence in the North Country and it was great to utilize this network throughout my experience for classes and projects. The faculty was extremely supportive and I transferred many of the lessons I learned from both professors and students into my work as an assistant coach. Overall, the program increased my confidence in my leadership abilities and showed me the importance of collaboration and partnerships in any work situation. I look forward to keeping in touch with my St. Lawrence mentors and friends as I move into a new role in the higher education community.
