JAMESTOWN - Guilford Technical Community College student Amelia Satterfield has graduated from the Student Leadership Development Program (SLDP). The year-long experience was developed by the North Carolina Community College System (NCCCS) to broaden leadership training opportunities and to better prepare community college students for professional and civic responsibilities.

Satterfield was among 30 students annually accepted by the SLDP to participate in a series of workshops, seminars and activities where students learn the fundamentals of leadership and are challenged to put their knowledge to work through group and individual projects.

According to Satterfield, she discovered her leadership strengths as well as her weaknesses.

"I gained valuable skills that continue to help me succeed in my academic and personal life as I prepare for my future career," said Satterfield, who is pursuing a degree in early childhood education.

Satterfield is interning at the Haynes-Inman Education Center in Jamestown and looks forward to applying for a position as a teacher assistant.

Guilford Technical Community College is the third largest of 58 institutions in the NC Community College System. GTCC serves more than 40,000 students annually from four major campuses and three specialized centers. Learn more at www.gtcc.edu.
