Rachel Johnson, Financial Aid Specialist at Piedmont Community College (PCC) recently completed the new Financial Aid Leadership Academy hosted by the North Carolina Community College System (NCCCS).

“The Financial Aid Leadership Academy provided me with the opportunity to improve my leadership skills as a Financial Aid Administrator,” states Johnson. “The training focused on different aspects of the role of a Financial Aid Leader and how to stay abreast of federal and state regulations.”

The NCCCS offered the Financial Aid Leadership Academy in an effort to provide training to designated financial aid administrators who are interested in assuming financial aid office leadership roles. Over the six session program, the Academy’s training increased the number of qualified financial aid administrators within the NC Community College System.

Johnson went on to share, “My participation in the academy helped me develop the skills necessary to become an effective leader. By attending the academy, I have expanded my professional network and forged long-lasting relationships. I am very appreciative of the continued support of [PCC] Administration for this amazing opportunity.”

This Leadership Academy focused on current employees in the system who also:
• Displayed an interest in serving as a leader in the financial aid community
• Demonstrated leadership on the campus and respective offices
• Expressed the desire and willingness to help students
• Exhibited the desire and willingness to seek volunteer and/or appointed leadership roles

“We could not be more proud of Rachel’s participation in the Financial Aid Leadership Academy,” said Shelly Stone-Moye, Vice President of Student Development at PCC. “Her participation in the academy will add significant value to the work she is already doing here at Piedmont Community College and increase the quality and the efficiency of the services we provide to our students. We look forward to seeing her put these added new skills into practice.”
