UAM Students Participate In Arkansas Student Leadership Forum

MONTICELLO, AR — Carly Curry of Sheridan and Bryson Berry of Hamburg recently represented the University of Arkansas at Monticello at the 18th annual Arkansas Student Leadership Forum at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Little Rock.

            The annual event brings together select students from colleges and universities throughout Arkansas to interact with state leaders in “an examination of servant leadership as demonstrated by Jesus of Nazareth.” The forum has its origins in the National Prayer Breakfast, which began in 1951 and is hosted annually by the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. In 1990, Congressional leaders started the National Student Leadership Forum as an outgrowth of the Prayer Breakfast and the Arkansas Student Leadership Forum is one of many state forums that emerged from that idea.

            Curry is a senior modern languages major with a minor in political science. She is currently a resident assistant at Maxwell Hall, working for the UAM Office of Residence Life, is a student assistant in the Office of Intramurals and Recreation, is a member of Pi Sigma Alpha national honor society for political science students, a member of Alpha Chi national collegiate honor society, the Missionary Baptist Student Fellowship, president of Delta Zeta Epsilon honor society, and was UAM’s 2015 homecoming queen.

            Berry is a junior nursing major and serves as treasurer of the Student Government Association, president of Sigma Tau Gamma fraternity, vice chairman of the College Republicans, vice president of the Greek Council, and treasurer of the Inter-Fraternity Council.
