Smith Attends Student V-P Leadership Summit

Kaitlyn Anna Smith of Wapwallopen recently attended the Student Vice President Leadership Summit hosted by The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi--the nation’s oldest and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines--in Salt Lake City, Utah, July 31 -August 1.

As student vice president of the Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania chapter of Phi Kappa Phi, Smith was nominated to attend the Leadership Summit, which brought together more than 65 student vice presidents from across the nation and the Philippines.

The two-day event was developed to engage the Society’s student vice presidents in personal and organizational development. Participants learned about strategies for operating and maintaining active chapters of Phi Kappa Phi and participated in a one-day training program of Collegiate EmPowerment seminars, which explored and enhanced individual strengths, interpersonal styles and the capacity to lead.

Founded in 1897 at the University of Maine and headquartered in Baton Rouge, La., Phi Kappa Phi is the nation’s oldest and most selective all-discipline honor society. The Society has chapters.
