MANSFIELD, PA— Four Mansfield University students; Sarah Gilbert, Mozart Guerrier, Jarrell Hill and Kevin Smith, participated in the Monster Diversity Leadership Programs (DLP) held at Villanova University on July 25-27.
Monster DLP is a summer leadership weekend where selected student-leaders connected with top-industry companies to develop critical life and career skills while embracing corporate diversity. The Philadelphia event attracted more than 400 students.
“We got to network with some of the top companies in America and the opportunity to network with students all across the country,” Guerrier, a senior psychology major from King of Prussia, PA said. “We went toe-to-toe with the nation’s best. I’m extremely proud of my peers and their accomplishments.” Guerrier received a $500 scholarship from Vanguard.
“My experience at DLP was amazing,” Hill, a senior nursing major from Philadelphia, said. “It gave me a sense confidence that strengthens my ability as a leader. Networking and engaging in activities with other students that attend other colleges and universities indicates that my education that I receive from MU is as valuable as any other institution." Hill was awarded a $500 dollar scholarship from Pittsburgh Memorial Hospital.
Smith, a sophomore math education major from Philadelphia who plays on the MU men’s basketball team, said he was frequently asked where Mansfield was. “They asked where it was, what kind of school it is, and he by the end of the conference I think we showed everyone what Mansfield was,” he said. Smith was commended by the U.S. Navy and Target and received a number of prizes.
"The Monster DLP is a great opportunity for any college student looking to better their leadership skills and network with some of the top corporations in the U.S.,” Gilbert, a sophomore business and accounting major from Buffalo, NY, said. “Not only do we network with companies, but also other students. I think that is an excellent experience because our fellow students now are our future coworkers. so it really gives you a jump start on your career."
