HAMMOND – Two Southeastern Louisiana University students were recently selected
to participate in the Southwestern Black Student Leadership Conference’s (SBSLC) Advanced
Leadership Institute (ALI).
Southeastern Student Government Association President Richard Davis, Jr. of Slidell and Southeastern 2018 Homecoming King Cedric Dent, Jr. of New Orleans were selected for this year’s Advanced Leadership Institute. The ALI provides seasoned student leaders with in-depth leadership experiences and opportunities that will help them become transformational leaders on their respective campuses and in their local communities, said Coordinator of Multicultural and International Student Affairs Marjorie Parker.
“There are many students from around the region who compete to be part of this institute, and we are Lion Proud of Richard and Cedric’s selection.” Parker said.
Held each January at Texas A&M University, the conference unites hundreds of students and advisors and features nationally renowned speakers, as well as a variety of corporations from across the country.
Parker said SBSLC is dedicated to addressing and developing solutions to major issues, as well as bringing a spirit of unity among students and leaders of all levels. The conference presents a number of creative workshops that focus on relevant topics and develop strong leadership skills.
