Carmen Wilder Receives Montgomery Leadership Award

From The Meridian Star:

carmen-wilder-awardCarmen Wilder, center, assistant director of Student Leadership and Community Engagement at Mississippi State University, was awarded the G.V. “Sonny” Montgomery Leadership Award for her work in service and leadership development in her role in the Montgomery Leadership Program at MSU. The Montgomery Leadership Program works with a select group of students who commit themselves to developing the leadership skills that transform lives – both theirs and others. With the Montgomery Leadership Program, Mississippi State recognizes the legacy of G.V. “Sonny” Montgomery, a 1943 Mississippi State alumnus and a 15-term U.S. congressman who authored the Montgomery G.I. Bill. A former “Mr. MSU,” he embodied the qualities of leadership, statesmanship, and public service that influenced generations of Americans. Shown making the presentation to Wilder were Montgomery Foundation board members Sid Salter, left, and Bob Bailey, right.
