Simpson Attends GA Rising
Georgia Military College student, Daniel Simpson, is one of only 24 college freshmen and sophomores throughout Georgia to be selected to participate in Georgia Rising, a leadership development program designed for college students. Georgia Rising focuses on three key elements of leadership development: broadening knowledge about the state of Georgia, heightening awareness of issues critical to the future of Georgia’s communities, and developing leadership skills to address these critical issues.
Sponsored by the Fanning Institute for Leadership, the first session of the Georgia Rising program was held May 22-25, 2005 at the University of Georgia. Participants were divided into teams and they investigated community issues through the immersion into Clarke and Oconee counties. Then, using the framework provided during this experience, each team conducted and presented a formal assessment of a local community. A reward system was utilized during the session to inspire social and intelligent engagement among the participants. Individuals, as well as teams, received reward points throughout the four-day session for various displays of leadership, teamwork, and creative thinking. Daniel’s team, the Crusaders, scored the most number of points (265). Two additional Georgia Rising sessions will be held during the upcoming school year.
Daniel Simpson is the son of Quincy and Donna Simpson of Toomsboro, GA. He is studying political science at Georgia Military College and intends to obtain his bachelors degree in political science, attend law school and pursue a career in public policy. At GMC, he is currently the president of the Student Government Association; president of the Amateur Ham Radio Club; Chairman of the College Republicans; and a member of the Honor Council. His volunteer efforts include assisting the elderly and the disabled and working his church’s office.
