Schreiner’s Mountaineer Leadership Academy in the Community

MLA Food Drive

Mountaineer Leadership hosted semester project called “Beat Hunger”

Kerrville, TX – Last week the Mountaineer Leadership Academy (MLA) Sophomore class hosted their semester project called “Beat Hunger”. This event focused on collecting can goods to donate to the local Salvation Army for the holidays. In total over 300 can goods were donated and delivered to the Salvation Army.

“We would like to thank everyone for your donations and in helping make this event a success,” said Dr. Matt Goodwyn, Assistant Dean of Students at Schreiner University.

MLA is a four-year leadership curriculum that progresses through the Freshmen, Sophomore, Junior and Senior academic years, identifying specific qualities of leadership development relative to the student’s interest of study to establish a foundation of leadership to be applied to the greater systematic whole.

The Sophomore year focuses on building upon a students’ leadership development through establishing an understanding of leadership involvement within a community. The importance of a leader’s systematic connection within a community is developed as students begin to clarify different responsibilities leaders have within a community. Communication, responsibility and connection to the systematic well-being of the community are established as a fundamental leadership quality for student leadership development.

The Sophomore Year is created as a continued Living Learning experience to allow students to engage in continued interactions within a familiar community to communicate and understand the implementation of personal leadership philosophies in a community.
