Bradley T. Conley, President of MCTC’s Student Senate, was a recipient of a Minnesota State College Student Association (MSCSA) Leadership Scholarship at the 2011 MSCSA Leadership Scholarship Dinner on January 7. Senator Amy Klobuchar was a speaker at the event.
Bradley says, “The scholarship is a tremendous honor and affirms my belief that a life dedicated to the betterment and empowerment of less privileged and those struggling with addiction has many rewards.” Bradley is working on his A.S. degree in Addiction Counseling.
The Leadership Scholarship builds a partnership between students, alumni, and friends of MSCSA to support student leaders across Minnesota. The scholarship rewards emerging student leaders for their community service and their academic achievement. Scholarship winners serve their community in many ways–everything from mentoring Head Start students to organizing youth groups to volunteering as a translator. Scholarships are awarded to undergraduate students who demonstrate strong leadership skills and a commitment to serving others.
Bradley’s work with the community has been extensive. He is the MCTC Student Representative with the Citizens for a Loring Park Community. He serves as the Metro West Region Representative for MSCSA. He is a member of the Minnesota Association of Resources for Recovery and Chemical Health (MARRCH) Ethics Committee. Bradley is the founder of Integrated Minnesota Partnership for Addiction Counselors of Tomorrow (IMPACT) and a former President of MCTC’s Addiction Counseling Club.
