Student leaders kick off second year of the West Virginia Student Success Leadership Council


The West Virginia Student Success Leadership Council (WVSSLC) kicked off its second year in a virtual conference last week attended by 55 student leaders representing 49 high schools and six colleges and universities across the state. The WVSSLC, an initiative of the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission, Community and Technical College System of West Virginia, and West Virginia Department of Education, is driven by its student members, who work together to help create a college-going culture in their schools and communities.
Through a virtual roundtable atmosphere, students talk about how they can help more of their peers prepare for college through key steps, including filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and exploring and applying for scholarships and grants. The group also participates in leadership training and works to identify and tackle challenges students are facing that could prevent them from pursing education or training after high school.
