"Are we helping the greatest number of people in the greatest way?" When asked how he might sum up the key thing that the National Society of Leadership and Success (Sigma Alpha Pi) does, founder Gary Tuerack responded, "We are dream supporters – we build leaders, support people in achieving their dreams, and better the world in the process. We get people to ask the all-important question, 'What would you do if you knew you couldn't fail?' and then help them to achieve those goals."

With this shared vision, Wilson Community College’s co-advisors for the campus’ Society Chapter, Alyssa Arnold and Sandra Lackner, began establishing a foundation for students to create the lives they desire by discovering what they want to do and by utilizing necessary support and tools to achieve their goals. The Society is founded upon the core beliefs that one can achieve his/her dreams with the proper support and dedicated action, and that we accomplish more together than we would achieve alone. “Ultimately we envision members of Sigma Alpha Pi enhancing personal, academic, and professional growth through self- motivation, success networking teams, personal success coaching, and international networking opportunities,” encourages Sandra Lackner, Director of Admissions and Student Activities.

Beginning with a handful of chapters in 2001, the Society now reaches tens of thousands of students at hundreds of chapters around the world. The organization encourages community action, volunteerism, personal growth, and strong leadership from its chapters and members around the world. Wilson Community College is proud to be one of the newest founding chapters in North Carolina. Since its establishment in October of this year, there are more than 120 active student members eager to move through the membership process through induction, where they will be tasked with accomplishing great challenges along the way. Alyssa Arnold, Student Support Services Counselor, is encouraged with the engagement and participation in last week’s first orientation session, "It is so exciting to have such a wonderful turnout to our first orientation session. I look forward to working with our members to uphold the mission of the society - to build leaders who make a better world."

Benjamin Franklin once said, "Many people die at 25 and aren't buried until 75." People don't go after their dreams because they don't believe they are possible. The vision of the Society was inspired by the passion of helping people to wake up and believe in their own potential, some of which they might not yet be seeing. Wilson Community College’s chapter of Sigma Alpha Pi has embarked on a journey that is far greater than any one person’s individual dreams. Through guidance and support, the students will set and achieve goals that not only impact their own lives, but will also facilitate the dreams of others.
