Robeson Community College Student Ambassador Timothy L. Sampson attended the June 2006 Student Leadership Institute (SLI) at Peace College in Raleigh.
To be accepted by the SLI students must be enrolled in the North Carolina Community College System and have at least one full year remaining as a student. Students are nominated by college administrators and then are screened by a selection committee. To be nominated, students must commit for one year and arrange or facilitate two to five workshops on their campus or in their community. The Student Leadership Institute can only admit 30 students a year.
Not only was the SLI founded to enhance the leadership quality of student participants but also to better prepare them for professional and civic responsibilities. Students are provided information and tools through many varying workshops and then challenged to put their knowledge to work through group and individual projects.
Sampson is scheduled to graduate in May with an associate of applied science degree. He plans to transfer to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he will major in biology and chemistry.
Sampson lives in Lumberton and is the son of Bonnie and Tedray Sampson.
