North Carolina Campus Compact Recognizes Central Piedmont Student for Leadership and Service

Congratulations to Central Piedmont Community College student Jacob Hege who was Jacob Hegerecently recognized for outstanding leadership and service by North Carolina Campus Compact, a statewide network of colleges and universities with a shared commitment to civic engagement.

Hege received the organization’s 2018 Community Impact Award, which honors one student leader at each school, during the organization’s annual CSNAP student conference, held Nov. 10 at Fayetteville State University.

Hege has made significant leadership and service contributions to the well-being of his fellow students, the Merancas Campus and the community as a whole since joining the Central Piedmont family two years ago. He is an active member of the campus’s Student Government Association, serving as the group’s Senate Chair. In this role, he has helped raise student involvement and awareness of campus events, increased SGA membership to record levels and brokered an agreement with Huntersville Parks and Rec to offer students free, weekly access to the local rec center and gym to promote healthy living.

In addition to spearheading several projects with SGA, he also contributes his leadership talents to Central Piedmont’s Rotoract Club, MAN UP organization, Phi Theta Kappa and Student Ambassador programs.

Says Jesse Bennett, the Student Life coordinator who nominated Hege for the award, “Jacob is an exemplary student, as well as a  person of tremendous character. His demonstrated leadership and vision have already made a positive impact on our campus community, and I have no reservations that his impact will continue to thrive at Central Piedmont long after he graduates.”

Hege, a Huntersville resident, plans to transfer to a four-year institution upon completing his associate of arts degree.

Mr. Maxwell has made it his life’s passion to develop leaders at all levels. In fact, his mantra is: “Growth doesn’t just happen. Growth is intentional and every person has the opportunity to choose growth or to be complacent with where they stand.”

Mr. Maxwell believes that by asking the right questions, gaining a better perspective and forming habits that apply what is learned, an individual can see a positive change in their leadership style and personal growth.

During his event at CPCC, Mr. Maxwell will discuss Intentional Living and share:

  • How Intentional Living can help you increase your ROI
  • How Intentional Living underlines the values and culture of your business
  • The difference between good intentions and Intentional Living
  • The one thing that adds the most value to your life
  • How to live the four steps to significance

Don’t miss this opportunity to not only ask Mr. Maxwell your leadership questions, but also take your first step toward intentional personal growth that will result in a rewarding personal and professional life.

WHEN: Thursday, May 21; 9 – 10:30 a.m.

What we need now is to let the group select the leadership team to guide the group from this point forward.

  • The elected officials will serve until the last day of the spring semester at which time we will hold elections for the next year at our general assembly meeting.

If you would like to run for a certain leadership position, you will need to complete a candidate form with your name, position you are running for and a brief description of why you would be the best person for this role.

Only candidates who are present during the Election Day are eligible to be elected to their desired positions. Following the candidate speeches and Q&A, all present will vote and submit their ballot.
