Scott Named to Leadership Greer Class 38

Dr. Tawana Scott ('85, M.B.A. '08), assistant vice president of graduate academic services at North Greenville University’s Greer Campus, has been selected as a member of Class 38 of Leadership Greer. The nine-month program begins in September with orientation and an overnight retreat and ends with graduation in May 2018.

Leadership Greer was established in 1978 by the Greater Greer Chamber of Commerce for the purpose of providing the area’s unequaled leadership and professional development program. The program strives to enrich the lives of participants and cultivate future leaders for the community.

“I applied to Leadership Greer because it is an excellent opportunity to develop greater leadership skills and meet some of the most successful professionals in our growing and changing town,” said Scott.

Topics covered during the year include: history of Greer, public safety, human services, local government, economic development, education, quality of life, media, and state government.

“I believe the opportunities provided through Leadership Greer to learn more about Greer, its history, our state and local government, economic developments in progress in our area, as well as, connect with phenomenal professionals will help me personally and professionally for NGU’s Greer Campus and enhance everything I do,” Scott said. 

Objectives for Leadership Greer are to: identify and select highly motivated leaders and potential leaders, examine and challenge participants to respond to the needs of the community and the dynamics of social and economic change, develop a sense of bonding and cooperating between the participants, and provide leadership training and development.

“Everything I hear about Leadership Greer demonstrates that it is a high caliber program.  I am honored to be selected as part of this amazing learning opportunity,” she said. “As an educator, I am a life-long learner and believe strongly in our faith-based educational opportunities at NGU’s graduate school.  I fully expect this opportunity to open many doors for us in the Greer community."
