3rd Annual Leadership Summit
Tillman Military Scholars, Pat Tillman Foundation staff, board members and University Partners from throughout the country gathered at the 3rd Annual Pat Tillman Leadership Summit at the University of Maryland outside Washington, D.C. in July 2012. The Leadership Summit was a three day gathering designed to build and strengthen the Tillman Community, provide access to resources, teach leadership and job skills to the Tillman Military Scholars, make a sustainable impact through service in a local community and to increase awareness of the issues facing veterans and military families today.
The Summit provided the opportunity for more than 100 Scholars to network face-to-face and to share their military and educational experiences. During the event, Scholars actively participated in leadership and professional development workshops focused on addressing challenges associated with the transition from military to campus and civilian life. Additional activities include a Day of Service in partnership with D.C.-area nonprofits and the opportunity for each Tillman Military Scholar to meet with his or her Congressional representative on Capitol Hill and share a personal account of the issues facing active and veteran service members and their spouses on college campuses across the U.S. See photos from the 3rd Annual Leadership Summit.
