During a remarkable first-year season—ultimately earning her Centennial Conference Rookie of the Year honors—Emily Gibbons ’18 found herself thrust into a leadership role on the Bullets basketball team.

Gibbons understood that leadership means much more than consistent play on the court, however, and that navigating the complexity of leadership would not be easy, so she turned to the Garthwait Leadership Center (GLC) for guidance.

In an effort to evolve her leadership strategies, and put this knowledge into practice in the real-world, Gibbons chose to participate in the Gettysburg College Leadership Certificate—a customizable yearlong program designed for any student, regardless of class year, to grow into a leader of action and integrity through the guidance of a trained leadership coach.

Now a senior, Gibbons sees the positive results of her leadership journey every day. Watch this video to learn more about her story.
