I’m Maj. Catherine Roy, your host for this episode titled “Making a Lasting Impact.” With me are VMI Class of 2022 and newly commissioned Army officers Seth McRoberts and Ryan Cooper.
McRoberts was a platoon leader for Charlie company, an English major, a member of the triathlon club, and cadet-in-charge (or CIC) for the Center’s Cadet-Superintendent’s Advisory Board (or CSAB) – a diverse group of cadets who volunteer their time to make recommendations on improvements to processes or policies affecting cadet life.
Cooper is an economics and business major, former captain of the NCAA Swim & Dive Team, and served with McRoberts as the assistant cadet-in-charge or ACIC for CSAB.
Both served as leadership conference table group facilitators. This volunteer role, an important factor in the success of our Annual Leadership Conference, requires pre-conference training that includes research on reading assignments on the conference theme and topics and attending training sessions.
Cadets who work as facilitators are responsible for leading the table group discussions. They learn how to handle a variety of communications styles, exercise critical thinking to challenge some of the feedback, and encourage everyone’s participation for a more valuable conference guest experience.
During today’s conversation, you will hear about the projects they worked on and how they used their time at VMI to make a lasting impact, now and in the future.
