Oct. 22, 2012

ATHENS, Ga. - Five former University of Georgia student-athletes were recently selected to join the 2012-13 Leadership UGA program. Colby May (baseball; Guyton, Ga.), Cameron Ellis (women's tennis; Roswell, Ga.), Ann Dylla (volleyball; Littleton, Colo.), Erica Malagon (women's swimming & diving; Athens, Ga.) and Georgina Nembhard (track & field; Jamaica) were all chosen to participate in the Leadership UGA program, as announced earlier in the fall 2012 semester.

Established in 1985, Leadership UGA serves to recognize the outstanding leaders on the Georgia campus and provide them a unique opportunity to interact with each other and prominent leaders.

Selection for this year's cohort was based upon a written application and a group interview, and 40 third, fourth year and graduate and professional students were chosen for the final cohort.

This year's Leadership UGA them is "Igniting Change in Our Communities", as the participants will learn and explore stories about individuals that have impacted the community in order to gain a better understanding of how they can also serve the community.

The core characteristics emphasized throughout the program include community, integrity, active citizenship, justice, life-long learning, inter-culturalism, responsibility and collaboration.

As part of selection to the program, the participants took part in a day-long retreat, in addition to conducting meetings five times throughout this fall semester. Two of the five meetings have already occurred, and the other three are set to take place on October 30, November 13 and November 27. A final program on November 27 will include poster presentations about each of the cohort members' plans for creating positive social change, and participants that attend all meetings and the retreat will graduate from Leadership UGA on December 2.
