“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.

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.
