Sixty-Two Inducted into NCWC’s National Society of Leadership & Success


ROCKY MOUNT, NORTH CAROLINA – Now in its fourth year as an official chapter, North Carolina Wesleyan College’s National Society of Leadership & Success (NSLS) recently inducted sixty-two student leaders into the organization. The National Society of Leadership & Success is the nation’s largest leadership honor society, with more than 700 chapters and over 1.2 million members.

NCWC’s chapter seeks to foster personal reflection, goal setting and leadership development amongst its members. The focus this fall was leading new students through completion of the national requirements to become fully inducted members. Although the chapter’s business and events evolved to mostly online, the club’s Chapter Advisor and Student Executive Board were pleased that members engaged in meaningful ways through live video and messaging. Students encouraged and challenged each other as they collectively sought to discover and define their purpose, set action plans on their goals and grow as leaders.

“With this fall semester being extremely different in many ways, one of the many successes sustained at NCWC was our chapter of the National Society of Leadership & Success, Sigma Alpha Pi,” stated Jessie Langley, Chapter Advisor and Associate Dean of Career Development & Leadership. “We have a history of success here at Wesleyan in regards to our NSLS members achieving all steps required to become fully inducted members, with 62 of our 87 new fall members achieving this status.”

With a 71% induction rate, NC Wesleyan’s NSLS chapter is exceeding the national chapter goal of 40%. While the College was not able to host their traditional induction celebration on campus, a ceremony was live streamed for members to attend in celebration of their accomplishments.

Through NSLS member nominations, Excellence in Teaching awards were given to faculty members Dr. Brent Dozier and Dr. Bill Yankosky. An Excellence in Service to Students award was presented to Atyah Spells. In order to achieve induction, members must attend Orientation, Leadership Training Day, three Speaker Broadcasts and three Success Networking Team meetings. Students are selected by their college for membership based on academic standing or leadership potential. Candidacy is a nationally recognized achievement of honorable distinction.

NC Wesleyan Freshman Speaks on Native American History


Honoring National Native American Heritage Month

ROCKY MOUNT, NORTH CAROLINA – North Carolina Wesleyan College is home to students from many different cultures and backgrounds. With November being National Native American Heritage Month, NCWC freshman Zachary Blake Scott took the time to educate and enlighten others about his tribe and American Indians in general. National Native American Heritage Month pays tribute to the rich ancestry and traditions of Native Americans.

NCWC freshman Zachary Blake Scott

Scott, who is a member of the Lumbee tribe of North Carolina, is majoring in Criminal Justice, minoring in Political Science and outfielder on the NC Wesleyan baseball team. Born and raised in Pembroke, a town in Robeson County, Scott is a community advocate in native outreach among the youth. He is passionate about singing and one of the youngest members of the American Indian drum group, Southern Sun Singers. All of his life, he has enjoyed attending powwows — a way that Native Americans get together to dance, sing and eat. Scott is the grandson of a minister and remains very dedicated to his faith and Christianity.

According to Scott: “The Lumbee are descendants of Siouan, Algonquian, and Iroquoian speaking tribes who lived in North Carolina prior to European contact. We are considered as Eastern Woodland people because we have always depended on the natural resources around us to provide basic needs such as food, shelter, clothing, weapons, medicines and tools. We have a culture of agriculture, family, hunting, gathering and Christianity. In fact, I still live on the farmland that my grandfather was raised on. All of my relatives have worked on this farm as their livelihood. My ancestors lived amongst the pines, swamps and the dark waters of the Lumber River, where we get our name. Many of the Lumbee still call this area home. We have never lived on a reservation. After European contact, my tribe, like others in North Carolina, were colonized. Many of our tribal distinctions were lost at the time. We lost our language, we dressed like colonists and most took on the Christian religion. Not much is written about our history because we, like most all tribes, passed down our stories verbally.”

There are eight state recognized tribes in the state of North Carolina, with only the Cherokee being federally recognized. In 1885, the state of NC recognized the Lumbee Tribe (not originally called Lumbee) and established a separate school system for tribal members. In 1953, the tribe’s name was changed to Lumbee.

Scott notes: “In 1956, Congress recognized the Lumbee as Indian, but failed to give us the status of a federally recognized tribe, which denied us benefits granted to federally recognized tribes. For years, my people have been fighting for federal recognition. There have been numerous bills regarding this to pass the House but has always stalled in Senate. Just this week, the Lumbee Recognition Act was passed out of the House of Representatives again. I am hopeful that it will not be long before we are granted the recognition we deserve.”

About the Lumbee Tribe
The 55,000 members of the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina reside primarily in Robeson, Hoke, Cumberland and Scotland counties. The Lumbee Tribe is the largest tribe in North Carolina, the largest tribe east of the Mississippi River and the ninth largest in the nation. The Lumbee take their name from the Lumbee River which winds its way through Robeson County. Pembroke, North Carolina is the economic, cultural and political center of the tribe.
