The Central Michigan University Leadership Institute is pleased to announce that Brianna VanCamp of Vicksburg has been selected to join the 2013 Leader Advancement Scholarship cohort. 

The Leader Advancement Scholarship is awarded each year to 40 outstanding incoming freshmen who have distinguished themselves through a record of leadership and service.  VanCamp served as the senior class vice president of Vicksburg High School Class of 2013. In addition, she was an executive for the student senate, participated in HOSA National Leadership Conferences, and did a number of volunteer projects, including Habitat for Humanity, Bronson Hospital VolunTEEN, and Special Olympics.

This record of leadership and volunteerism helped Brianna stand out in a pool of nearly 2,500 applicants to be selected for a Leader Advancement Scholarship.

Opened in 1998, the Central Michigan University Leadership Institute is the premier collegiate leadership program in the Midwest. The Institute gives students an opportunity to develop their leadership qualities. The organization is committed to providing students and members of the community with opportunities to continually enhance their leadership skills. The flagship program of the Leadership Institute is the nationally-recognized Leader Advancement Scholarship. Members of the Leader Advancement Scholarship cohort reside in the leadership hall, Barnes Hall, and complete a four-year academic and co-curricular protocol.

Scholarship recipients are afforded the opportunity to enroll in general education coursework with a leadership component infused into the classroom experience. Outside of the classroom students contribute volunteer service, attend leadership development trainings, and mentor incoming students.

Brianna is currently enrolled at CMU and plans to enter the Physician’s Assistant program upon completion of her Bachelor degree. She is the daughter of Wendy (Steve) Pheils of Vicksburg and Kevin VanCamp of Mendon.
