Wilmington, DE—Strive: How You Lead Matters is proud to announce our new, blossoming partnership with Millsaps College. Strive is excited to support the school’s "Major Difference" initiative which aims to motivate student-athletes to achieve excellence in every aspect of their lives: athletic, academic and personal development.
As part of the program, selected team captains and leaders from Millsaps' varsity athletic teams began their week by participating in a two-day workshop that provided an exceptional and comprehensive leadership training program to all in attendance.This was the first of a series of workshops that will be held at Millsaps throughout the year.
Millsaps, located in the heart of Jackson, Mississippi, has become a pioneer in the field of athletic leadership. Their athletic department places an exceptional emphasis on leadership and aspires to create a more dynamic and meaningful program in which their student-athletes can learn and grow.
Strive’s very own superstar and Millsap Alumna, Coach Raven Scott, facilitated the workshop at her alma mater. “It was an honor being back at Millsaps,” said Scott. “They have such a unique culture among their student athletes. Every athlete was fully engaged throughout the entire program, asking meaningful questions and generating impressive, thought-provoking conversations.”
Scott was a 4-year letter winner for the Millsaps College Volleyball team. With honors as Freshman of the Year, 1st Team All-Conference, and 1st Team All-Academic, she continued to refine her leadership skills year after year. Scott graduated from Millsaps in 2013 with a degree in Anthropology and now works for Strive as a Program Associate.
“As a former Major, I know and understand the struggles that these athletes face everyday. I loved being able to connect with the athletes on a deeper level and share some of the things I wish I knew when I was their age.”
This new partnership falls perfectly in line with Strive’s mission to spread the power of character-driven leadership. Welcome to the family Millsaps College! We look forward to growing with you.
