The Northeast Lakeview College chapter of The National Society of Leadership and Success (NSLS) has received the prestigious Order of Sigma award. 

The Order of Sigma award is the highest honor of NSLS’s Pillar Program, reserved for those chapters who successfully complete all 15 pillars in the administration of their chapters.  Based on the 15 best practices of a healthy chapter, the National Office developed the program to help set each chapter up for long-term success and sustainability. 

NSLS provides a leadership development program consisting of Orientation, Leadership Training Day, three Speaker Broadcasts, three Success Networking Team meetings, and an Induction Ceremony where students receive their Certificate of Leadership Training upon completion of the above requirements. 

Shahla Akbari, Director of Chapter Support for NSLS, adds, “It takes planning, hard work, and dedication for Chapter Leaders to achieve this standard of excellence.  This achievement demonstrates a very high level of commitment towards running a quality leadership program for our members.”

Northeast Lakeview College is the first Alamo Colleges District chapter to complete the pillars for the 2017-2018 academic year.

NSLS is the nation's largest leadership honor society, where students are selected for membership based on an overall grade point average of 2.75 or higher and have completed six credit hours or more at Northeast Lakeview College.  Candidacy is a nationally recognized achievement of honorable distinction.  In addition to scholarships and awards, lifetime membership provides access to benefits including exclusive on-campus events, employer recruitment through an online job bank, discounts on computers, textbooks, grad school prep courses, insurance, and much more.
