Two State Tech students will participate in the Governor’s Student Leadership Forum
Two students from the State Technical College of Missouri were nominated for the Missouri Governor’s Student Leadership Forum later this month.
Mason Zollman, of Lathrop, and Eric Estrada, of Columbia, were chosen by the technical college to attend the annual Student Leadership Forum Feb. 25-27 in Jefferson City.
Chris Bowser, vice president of student affairs at State Tech, named Zollman and Estrada based on their GPA, overall conduct and leadership and involvement on campus.
Bowser said Estrada’s leadership qualities were on display as an officer of the Student Government Association on campus. He said he shows a willingness to be an engaged campus leader and brings good ideas from the student body.
Bowser said he was also thrilled to nominate Zollman, who became a marketing intern at State Tech during his first semester on campus. Bowser said Zollman also applied to be an SGA officer for the next school year.
“We couldn’t be more proud of these two young men,” Bowser said in a press release.
The Missouri Governor’s Student Leadership Forum brings together students from across the state for a series of workshops and to hear from various speakers, including Governor Mike Parson.
Over the course of three days, participating students will hear from Taisir Yanis, owner of Yanis Coffee Zone, Bob Priddy, longtime Missouri Capitol reporter, and Becca Chapman and William Bumpus of Wheeler Mission, the world’s largest rescue mission and shelter for those without -Indiana Shelter.
“I think this will be an amazing opportunity for me,” Zollman said in State Tech’s press release. “I hope to develop life skills that will help me in my transition to the business world when I graduate from State Tech.”
