“Remember, you are the same today as you will be in five years, except for two things: the people you meet and the books you read. Choose both carefully.”
― Charlie Jones
The Aron and Mary Lois Savell Leadership Mentor Program is led by their son, Jeff Savell, as a tribute to the leadership they both displayed throughout their lives and the lasting influence that both of them had on friends and family. This program is designed to help college students reach their full leadership potential through individual study and group sessions using books, videos, guest speakers, and other sources of information that challenges and pushes them to develop to their maximum. Both undergraduate and graduate students are welcome to participate in this program.
The first class began in September, 2012, and was called, “Aron and Mary Lois Savell Leadership Mentor Group, 2012-2013.” The second class began in September, 2013 and was called, “Aron and Mary Lois Savell Leadership Mentor Group, 2013-2014.” The third class will begin in September, 2014 and will be called Aron and Mary Lois Savell Leadership Mentor Group, 2014-2015.
