Brookdale’s Chapter of The National Society of Leadership and Success (NSLS) inducted more than 75 new members during its induction ceremony on May 2.

“You have what it takes to be successful because now you are leaders. That is something to be proud of,” Dr. William Burns, associate vice president of educational access and innovation, said to the inductees.

Burns and Dr. Yesenia Madas, associate vice president of student affairs, were awarded honorary membership to the NSLS at the ceremony. Elizabeth Kruijssen, associate director of Brookdale at Hazlet, received the Excellence in Service award. Jay Oza, Lindsey Pollak, and Daniel Simon received the Excellence in Teaching awards.

“We are building leaders who make a better world,” said Dr. Sarah McElroy, director of Career and Leadership Development and NSLS co-advisor.

NSLS members must have a 2.75 GPA, have completed a minimum of 6 credits at Brookdale, must attend an orientation session and a leadership training day and attend three success networking team meetings and three live speaker broadcasts to qualify for NSLS membership.
