It's been two years since Red Hat invested in the Shelton Challenge, setting us up to shape values-based leaders for many years to come. Our gratitude endures, we could not do our work without partners like Red Hat!

Today we are highlighting Keshal Patel in our #WhyIVolunteer series. Keshal is from Cary, NC and studies Public Policy and Psychology at UNC Chapel Hill. Keshal has been involved with the SLC in a number of ways for the past 7 years, including camper, peer leader, and CMT.

The Shelton Leadership Center is excited to welcome our newest staff member, Ashley Turlington, Assistant Director for Pre-College Programs. If you are on campus next Thursday, January 23, stop by PCJ in Talley Student Union between 11:30am-12:30pm to meet Ashley and welcome her!

Last weekend both cohorts of CLDP partnered with the @FoodShuttle to help carry out a mobile food market for community members facing food insecurity. Our group assisted with unloading a truck full of food donations that were then organized and sorted for 100 families.
