A&M-Texarkana Installs New Chapter of The National Society of Leadership and Success
TEXARKANA, Texas – Texas A&M-Texarkana has the newest chapter of The National Society of Leadership and Success (NSLS), the largest leadership honor society in the United States. NSLS has chapters at 599 colleges and universities nationwide, and boasts a membership roster of over 870,000 students. Members are selected based on their academic standing and their leadership potential.
TAMUT’s chapter is led by student Phillip Derouen, who took the initiative to start a local chapter of NSLS. The process took more than a year, with Derouen working closely with the national NSLS organization and traveling to New Jersey to receive specialized training and collaborate with other chapter presidents. To be formally inducted into the honor society students must complete a series of steps and processes designed to help bolster their leadership skills. TAMUT’s chapter held its first induction ceremony on May 1st and inducted 110 students, instantly becoming the largest student-run organization on campus.
