The Shelton Leadership Center’s values-based leadership development programs now reach youth, college students, and professionals at NC State University and other higher education institutions, corporations, government entities, nonprofits, and youth development organizations. His values-based leadership approach is based on five values: honesty, integrity, diversity, compassion, and social responsibility. The Shelton Leadership Center’s vision is to positively impact values-based leadership behavior throughout the University, within the corporate and business community, and eventually across the nation and world. Exposing individuals to the value of disciplined, purposeful action in the multiple “playing fields” of life, and providing tools to accomplish this, is a key component of the Center’s programs, as are collaboration, cooperation, communication, and partnership.
The Shelton National Leadership Scholarship awards two or three entering freshmen (to North Carolina State) $5,000 annually toward tuition and fees, renewable upon satisfactory academic progress and leadership involvement. The General Hugh Shelton Leadership Endowment also provides: $2,000 annually for student leadership enrichment experiences; and, additional networking, leadership seminars and professional development experiences.
