Lakeland University’s chapter of National Society of Leadership and Success (NSLS) welcomed new president, Tia Poe, this fall semester. Tia joins NSLS leaders Corey Roberson, Director of Leadership and Engagement, and LaJill Edge, Student Engagement Advocate. As a preeminent leadership honor society, the NSLS helps students achieve success in their personal and professional lives by honing their leadership skills and turning their ambition into action, according to their website.

Founded in 2017, the Lakeland University chapter is new but already has 424 members. Being an active member of the NSLS not only helps Lakeland students strive toward success, but also provides an important signifier on their resume—their potential to be excellent leaders. The NSLS believes in the mentality that learning is lifelong journey, and they provide many tools and resources students need to identify and achieve their goals. Once an inducted member of the NSLS, there are several scholarship opportunities and discounts to various retail outlets available, such as Target, Office Depot, Global Fit, HP, Dell, Lenovo, and Panasonic to name a few.

According to the NSLS website, “Nomination criteria is determined by the local chapter leaders and is typically based on GPA and/or leadership potential. Students invited to their school’s chapter have earned distinction with their nomination but must complete the leadership program requirements to achieve induction.” If you are wanting more information of how you can tap into your leadership potential through the NSLS, please visit, or contact our Lakeland University chapter.
