The Mott Community College (MCC) chapter of the National Society of Leadership and Success (Sigma Alpha Pi) inducted 51 new members for the Winter Semester, as well as awarding 11 National Engaged Leaders recognitions April 22, in the Mott Memorial Building Auditorium.

The ceremony is the culmination of a years’ work.  Sigma Alpha Pi is for students with a 2.7GPA or higher, have completed 12 credits, and are enrolled for the Fall or Winter Semester at MCC.  Membership requirements include completion of: an orientation, a leadership training day, three speaker broadcasts, and three Success Networking Team meetings. 

Additionally, 11 members completed the requirements to receive the National Engaged Leader Award (NELA), which constitutes competing three additional speaker broadcasts, three additional Success Networking Team meetings, and five hours of community service.

The group also recognized two faculty and two staff members with awards. 

Aaron Gulyas, History faculty member, was awarded the Excellence in Teaching Award for analyzing events and ideas in a way that opens students’ mind and challenging them every day.

Lynn Wandrey, Biology faculty member, was also awarded an Excellence in Teaching Award for lectures that ensure students not only understand the material, but have fun while learning.

Shawn Brown, Assistant Baseball Coach, was awarded the Excellence in Service Award. Affectionately known as ‘Brownie,’ students said he is more than a baseball coach. Anywhere he is needed, he is there and ready to help in any way he can.

Al Perry, Athletic Director, was also awarded an Excellence in Service Award, for encouraging students to be their best in their sport and in the classroom and for creating a positive culture in the Athletic Department

Two Chapter Awards were presented:

Diane LaBree achieved over 200 hours of community service from September 2016 to April 2017, and Megan McGee supervised more than 20 Success Networking Team Meetings from September 2016 to April 2017.
