I am very lucky to be apart of the Leadership Institute at Central! As a Leadership Advancement Scholar, I am presented with so many opportunities and experiences to grow as an individual and leader. Plus the scholarship money, special classes taken with a cohort of 40 other LAS kids (aka some of my best friends!), and a mentor to advise you through the struggles of college! I choose to attend CMU for this very reason, and I would not trade it for the world!
If you are a high school student looking for involvement such as this as you go on to college, and you demonstrated service and leadership throughout your schooling, APPLY! You will not regret it! I promise!
