The Center for Public Service and Scholarship
~ May 2016 ~
Thank you board members for supporting CPSS.  All the work we do would not be possible without your contributions. 
The Center for Public Service and Scholarship's Leadership by Design summer program is a wonderful, week long program open to rising high school seniors that will be held on June 19 – 24, 2016.  During the program, students explore many aspects of self discovery.  They attend presentations about ethics and civility, participate in a simulated society activity, and experience living with their fellow participants in Shenandoah University's residence halls.  The  students additionally learn about advocacy, community canvassing, and presenting persuasive speeches.  

More information about our
Leadership by Design program can be found on our website.  
Introducing our 2016 Leadership by Design counselors:
Hannah McKiernan

My name is Hannah McKiernan and I’m a rising senior at the College of William & Mary. I hail from Winchester and a couple of other places throughout the valley. At William & Mary, I serve as the Student Body Vice-President and as the Vice-President of Alpha Phi Omega, a nationwide co-ed service fraternity. I also serve as the Campaign Coordinator for the W&M chapter of Young Democrats. 
College has taught me more about myself than I could have ever imagined and I’ve learned more about my leadership style than anything else. Being a member of multiple organizations has taught me the importance of keeping a rigorous schedule and how to deal with different groups that have very different goals. I’ve also learned that the most important thing that I can do is to work to motivate others to take positions of leadership. One of my goals in any organization is to ensure that every voice is respected and that the people around me feel empowered to move others towards meaningful change. 
Zach Woodley

My name is Zach Woodley and I’ll be starting my second year of pharmacy school this fall within Shenandoah’s Doctor of Pharmacy program. I graduated from James Wood High School here in Winchester back in 2012 and continued my education at Shenandoah University, where I completed my Bachelor of Science in Biology in 2015. As a P2, I am currently a member of the Society of Veterinary Hospital Pharmacists (SVHP), the American Pharmacists Association: Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA-ASP) and a brother in the professional fraternity Phi Delta Chi.

I’ve planned on going to pharmacy school ever since my junior year of high school. I’ve always been a meticulous planner when it comes to my education, but I cannot imagine having gotten this far without the guidance of those that came before me. As someone that was quite shy up until my senior year of high school, I can definitively say that it’s never too early to start developing your leadership skills. In fact, my time as President of James Wood’s chapter of Health Occupation Students of America (HOSA) during my senior year was paramount in my growth and confidence as a leader. Regardless of whether you have aspirations to go all the way to graduate school or you don’t plan on going to college at all, leadership skills are essential to being successful in any field. 
Chad Smith

My name is Chad Smith and I am a rising second year graduate student at Shenandoah University’s Bernard J. Dunn School of Pharmacy. I have lived in Front Royal, VA for all of my life, graduating from Warren County High School in 2012, and graduating with a B.S. of Biology and a B.S. of Chemistry from Shenandoah University in 2015. During my time at Shenandoah, I became a member of Alpha Lambda Delta National Honor Society, Alpha Chi National Honor Society, Beta Beta Beta Biology Fraternity, the American Pharmacists Association: Academy of Student Pharmacists, and am now the Sergeant-at-Arms for the Delta Xi chapter of Kappa Psi Pharmaceutical Fraternity.

I am very excited to be the first counselor who has also been a participant in the program. In the five years since I participated in Leadership By Design, I have utilized the skills and lessons I learned during that amazing week countless times. As a graduate student, I am constantly using time-management, social, and leadership skills to progress through my education. Teamwork is such a large component of higher education. The exercises that make up Leadership by Design not only build up leadership skills in the students, but also teach teamwork and collaboration. I know that this program brings about so many benefits to the coordinators, participants, and the community in so many ways.
