ESCC STUDENT WINS REGIONAL STUDENT LEADERSHIP AWARD
Enterprise, AL -Enterprise, AL - The Enterprise State Community College Welcoming Orientation Weevils (WOW) team recently attended their annual conference, Southern Regional Orientation Workshop (SROW), held at UNC Charlotte. This was the largest SROW in history and consisted of teams from nine states. Schools attended sessions on how to make orientation more engaging and more productive, as well as discussing the importance of Orientation and the leaders who make it happen in the recruitment and retention efforts of their respective schools.
“Our team had the opportunity to network with teams from other schools, trade ideas, and come together as a team to show off our Weevil spirit,” said ESCC Retention Specialist Rebecca Coats. “By the end of the conference, ESCC had made a name for itself in the largest region of the National Orientation Director’s Association (NODA). There were teams from Florida, North Carolina and even Louisiana.”
The ESCC WOW Team made an impact in the largest gathering of students ever to attend a NODA conference by bringing home the Regional Student Leadership Award for the two-year college category. Hannah Martin was nominated by Coats and selected by
NODA and the Southern Region as the most deserving student leader in the entire region.
“I was really surprised and it was a great honor to receive this award considering there were around 2,000 students attending,” said Martin. “SROW was really fun and rewarding and I learned a lot from this experience.
Martin is on scholarship as the ESCC mascot, Bo the Weevil, a member of the Welcoming Orientation Weevils, President of National Society of Leadership and Success, a Peer Mentor, and a member of the SGA. Martin plans to attend Troy University in the Fall.
