In addition to honorable distinction, the society provides a step-by-step program for members to build their leadership skills through participation at their campus or online. Upon completion of the program, members receive their leadership certificate and take their place among the top student leaders at their campus and across the country.
Brianna DiPanni of New Canaan is spending the spring semester abroad. DiPanni, a member of the class of 2018 at Assumption College in Worcester, Mass., is studying in Ireland.
