Halifax Community College student Sherry Agee of Gaston recently graduated from the North Carolina Community College Student Leadership Institute (SLI) in Raleigh. She was one of 25 students from North Carolina's 58 community colleges who completed the program.

Agee graduated last May from the Business Administration curriculum. She is currently working on an Office Systems Technology associate's degree at HCC, with a goal of completing her bachelor's degree in the near future.

Along with managing a full-time position at HCC, Agee is the Alpha Eta Phi Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa president, a Sigma Alpha Pi National Society of Leadership and Success member, a Howerton Gowen and N.C. Community College Trust Fund Scholar, a member of Who's Who Among Students in American Junior Colleges, an HCC scholarship recipient, a Microsoft Certified Professional and has earned a place on the President's and Dean's lists each semester at HCC.

Participants started the learning process at SLI with a week full of workshops at Peace College in Raleigh last summer. Students worked within groups on a project of their choice. The projects consisted of diverse workshops, which they exchanged to carry back to their individual campuses. After completing the summer week, students returned in the fall and spring for weekend mini-sessions.
