Livingstone College has five students attending the American Association of University Women’s (AAUW) leadership signature program, the National Collegiate Conference of Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL) which runs through Saturday at the University of Maryland College Park.

Natasha Campbell, Gianna Brown, Mia Mason, Da’Niyah Shelby and Kenniya Wilson received full scholarships from the national body after submitting applications, and Campbell received a travel stipend from the local AAUW Branch.

“I am so excited to engage in this leadership opportunity,” Campbell said. “I’m appreciative of AAUW on both the national and local level for this opportunity to develop myself as a growing professional with leadership potential.”

The mission of AAUW’s conference is to foster a moment that ignites a powerful movement. Year after year, the conference brings together hundreds of college women from across the nation for an immersive multi day experience of workshops, leadership training, inspiration and networking. The event strives to cultivate an inclusive and equitable space where attendees can enter as passionate leaders and depart with the skills, confidence and perspective necessary to pursue their goals and drive meaningful change.
