Student Veteran Chosen for Selective Leadership Program

    September 17, 2019

    One University of Scranton student veteran, Amy Atkinson, who has been actively advocating for veterans on campus, was invited to attend Student Veterans of America’s Leadership Institute in Washington, D.C. on Sept. 10-13, 2019. This is an honor that is extended to only a select group of student veterans who are SVA Chapter Leaders, out of hundreds of applications.

    Amy Atkinson is a senior at The University of Scranton where she studies counseling and human services. She is a U.S. Army veteran, president of the Student Veterans Organization, member of the Committee on the Status of Women and Counseling and Human services Association, as well as a member of three national honor societies: Alpha Pi Sigma, SALUTE and Tau Upsilon Alpha.

    The concept behind the SVA Leadership Institute is that long-term leadership success comes from an intimate knowledge of one’s core values and how they can be used to empower others. Attendees are mentored through this experience by successful SVA alumni, business leaders, and veterans’ advocates.
