GREENVILLE, Pa.—Angela Campbell ’20, a sociology, criminal justice and psychology major with minors in political science and legal studies, was one of just 35 women from Pennsylvania to participate in the competitive National Education for Women’s Leadership Pennsylvania program this summer.
Campbell, of Pittsburgh, is a 2016 graduate of Plum Senior High School.
“The leadership program was a very rewarding experience for me. My favorite part of the program was the opportunity to network with other female, like-minded peers and government officials. It was empowering being surrounded by such influential community and state leaders,” Campbell said. “Through this program, I was also able to build on my public speaking skills and develop new skills to help me with my future endeavors. These skills that I have learned will be utilized throughout my remaining time at Thiel while encouraging and supporting other future leaders on our campus. It was an honor to be able to represent Thiel College at this statewide conference.”
The weeklong residence program, put on by the Pennsylvania Center for Women and Politics, is geared toward teaching college women across the state the value of civic engagement by encouraging them to see themselves as empowered leaders who can participate effectively in politics and public policy. During the summer program, students developed and practiced leadership skills, established networks with like-minded peers and successful political women and embraced their own leadership abilities. Graduates of the program are actively engaged in making a difference in their communities as elected or appointed officials, policymakers, issue experts and informed citizens.
