Every year, the National Society of Leadership and Success offers paid internships to college students who want to start a society chapter at their respective campuses.
And every year, thousands of students from across the country apply. For 2013, that number hit the 3,000 mark.
“Of those 3,000,” Paige Billingsley, a senior marketing student at PSU said, “only 30 got it. Thirty out of 3,000. It’s a tough one to get.”
Billingsley applied and went through a rigorous process that involved “six or seven interviews.”
“I was one of the 30 chosen to start a local chapter,” she said. “This is a great opportunity for me, but it’s also a great opportunity for Pitt State students to get involved with a successful and effective leadership program that will benefit them now and especially when they graduate.”
The National Society of Leadership and Success is a nationwide community of college leaders dedicated to “building leaders who make a better world.” It is one of the largest honor organizations in the United States.
