Christine Wertz, University of Baltimore student, writes about her Collegetown LeaderShape experience.
My Class 6 staff family, 2015
Baltimore Collegetown offers plenty of opportunities for LeaderShape alumni to sustain their involvement with their graduating class, other alumni, and the new cohort of LeaderShapers. Now more so than ever, with a new Alumni Board consisting of former participants from all colleges and all classes. The board will be planning alumni events to further engage, challenge, and teach LeaderShapers long after their graduation day. These alumni will be instrumental in providing connections, mentorship, and guidance to new participants, as I have with Class 6.
It is always difficult when a good thing comes to an end – but LeaderShape never ends. It teaches you how to navigate an ongoing process of self-evaluation, community building, and vision making. The skills you learn, the friendships you make, will never go away.
UB's Class 5 LeaderShapers with our Campus Liaison, Anthony Butler
LeaderShape never ends, even when the people within it change. This will be BeMore’s last year as the guiding force for LeaderShape at UB. Sara Ousby, director of the Rosenberg Center for Student Involvement, will be taking Anthony Butler’s place as our campus liaison. Anthony has been our campus liaison for the past six years. We will be handing the blog over to Sara in the coming weeks to introduce our brand new LeaderShapers for next year, Class 7, so please stay tuned and welcome them with as much warmth as you have show us this past semester.
Thank you for following our journey and we’ll see you again soon!
