Ethan Mancil attends Shelton Leadership Challenge at NCSU

Ethan Mancil from Gray Stone Day School attended the 9th Annual Shelton Challenge at North Carolina State University in Raleigh this summer. Ethan is the son of Dr. and Mrs. Gary Mancil of Salisbury.
During the week of July 24-29, Ethan was one of approximately 116 young people from all over the United States who were actively a part of the experience.
As former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Hugh Shelton reflects on how his experiences as a youth prepared him for the opportunity to serve his country. Convinced that the values instilled in him by educators, church and community leaders and family provided the foundation for his success, the Shelton Challenge is one way he believes he can “give back” while developing our next generation of leaders, for our communities, corporations, armed forces and educational institutions.
The week-long events assisted individuals in becoming more aware of personal leadership skills through leadership responsibilities, leadership challenge team exercises; learning about styles and situational leadership; goal setting; integrity within leadership; ethical decision-making; empowering others; leadership traits; social responsibility through service projects and the role values play in leadership.
Students were evaluated on their leadership responsibilities and provided constructive feedback to enhance leadership potential.
It is made possible through partnerships like State Farm that assist in making the experience meaningful for all who participate.
Ethan reflects, “I learned so much about how important it is to give everyone a voice. What a great experience!”
