Megan Shaner, director of enrollment and student success at Johnston Community College, recently completed the North Carolina Community College Leadership Program (NCCCLP).

The purpose of NCCLP is to develop future community college leaders in North Carolina. The seven-month program offers participants organized, face-to-face and computer-based learning experiences that acquaint them with community college issues and help them develop leadership skills.

Shaner said the participants learned a lot about strength-based leadership and how to use personal strengths and the strengths of others to develop solid teams.

"This program puts you in a place with other professionals with similar career paths at similar points in their life trying to make themselves the best leader they can be," Shaner said. "I enjoyed being with leaders from other community colleges, and what I learned from them and their personal experiences was just as valuable to me as what I learned from the facilitators."

"I really appreciate the College allowing me to be a part of the program. It was worth every minute."

Shaner has worked at JCC since 2010. In her current position, she oversees admissions, counseling, athletics, and student life opportunities at JCC.

Shaner earned her bachelor of arts degree in history and master of arts degree in teaching from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She completed Leadership Johnston in 2013. She serves on the board of directors for the Public Library of Johnston County and Smithfield and is a member of St. Paul's Episcopal Church.

She and her husband, Jeremy, live in Smithfield. They have two children, Ivan, 6, and Miranda, 2.
