Five Randolph Community College employees completed the requirements of the President’s Educational Leadership Academy recently at RCC.
This is the eighth class to participate in the Academy, which is designed to help develop employee leadership skills. It was implemented in spring 2011 as part of President Robert Shackleford’s presidential initiatives. Employees participating this spring were Kelly H. Castelloe, system administrator II; Matthew S. Cox; payroll specialist; Kandi B. Hughes, data specialist for College and Career Readiness; Jennifer L. Macy, SACS liaison/director of Writing Across the Curriculum/instructor; and Dr. G. Warlock Vance, English/Reading instructor.
The participants took part in eight group sessions and three individual sessions with Dr. Shackleford and studied leadership texts such as “Please Understand Me” and “The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership.” They were also required to attend several leadership learning opportunities, such as Randolph County Commissioners’ meetings, Board of Trustees’ meetings, Foundation Board of Directors’ meetings, or College Student Success classes taught by Dr. Shackleford.
Applicants are required to have completed one year of employment at RCC by the start of the session for which they are selected. Selection is based on a number of factors including evidence of leadership, leadership potential, representation from all areas of the College, as well as the nature of the applicant’s job.
