RALEIGH, N.C. (February 28, 2014) - Wake Tech students had the opportunity to expand their leadership potential and grow personally and professionally today during the first-ever Student Leadership Conference at the college’s Northern Wake Campus. The conference included sessions on communication, networking, and time management. 

A panel discussion moderated by Wake Tech President Dr. Stephen Scott included four prominent local leaders: North Carolina Senator Josh Stein, WRAL Anchor Debra Morgan, Lenovo Vice President Tom Looney, and Duke Energy Regional Director Willette Morman.  

Morman, a Wake Tech graduate, offered students this advice: “It’s not always about the money. You have to have a goal and passion. Be prepared for opportunities and make sacrifices. Hard work pays off.” 

Students and guests also enjoyed lunch in the atrium located in Building E. 

The Student Leadership Conference was organized by Wake Tech employees as part of an Applied Benchmarking project. Applied Benchmarking is Wake Tech's continuous improvement initiative which challenges college employees to find great ideas and innovative solutions at other institutions and bring them to Wake Tech. The goal of the conference was to provide leadership training and development to help students expand their potential for success.
