Recently, Senior Madison Cole was chosen as the student leader of the month for November at the University of Arkansas.
The Student Leader of the Month award finds students who exhibit extraordinary skills in leadership through a number of areas, including volunteering, community service and leadership opportunities. The award is sponsored by the New Student & Family Programs.
Cole's involvement at the University of Arkansas has been extensive, as she is a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma Sorority, the director of alumni relations on the Student Alumni Association, president of the Order of Omega Honors Society and also a member of the Alpha Epsilon Delta Pre-Medical Society.
Cole's desire to play a role in these different clubs and societies has come from her wish to interact with a wide range of populations. She also credits her involvement with wanting to leave an impression on the campus and individuals there.
In a conversation with Cole, she explained what was required to be a good leader, stating that one should lead selflessly and put others' concerns ahead of your own.
"With the quality of integrity comes honesty, truthfulness, responsibility and a leader with sound values; I also think a very important quality a leader should have is an encouraging spirit," Cole said.
She thanked her brother, Austin Cole, for his positive influence on her life and for being her mentor.
