    Jennifer Schmidt, a second-year MBA student, was recently chosen for the AGUILA Leadership Program.  This three-day leadership retreat takes place this year in January, in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.  AGUILA (Advocates Galvanizing Unity and Inspiring Leadership Advancement) is value-based and unites leaders with up and coming professionals that are committed to volunteerism with area non-profit organizations.  AGUILA is unique because it is focused on advancement of community based leaders who can utilize their experience and culture to motivate others.

    At this retreat, Jennifer could have the opportunity to be mentored through an experiential series of sessions that expose her to Value-Based Decision Making; Non-Profit Stewardship; Team Building; Project & Conflict Management.  The goal of the sessions is to both educate and inspire future leaders to be more active in their efforts both within their current organizations and their future ones.

    This is a great honor for Jennifer, and we congratulate her on all of her accomplishments!
