Area student participates in leadership seminar

SELINSGROVE-Matthew Derrick, of Williamsport, was one of more than 60 Susquehanna University students to participate in the school’s annual LeaderShape program in January.

The LeaderShape Institute is a six-day leadership seminar for college students, focusing on a range of activities and informational sessions that build community and inspire participants to be better campus leaders. The program engages students, faculty and staff facilitators, and aims to both strengthen the network of existing campus leaders and prepare newer students for future leadership roles.

Derrick, a junior journalism major, is a 2010 graduate of Loyalsock Township High School.
