Brian Mansfield served as president of Cape Fear Community College's Phi Theta Kappa chapter for two years, and led the chapter to the coveted 5-star level award for two consecutive years. Because Brian gave tirelessly of his time, resources, and energy, chapter members successfully nominated him for the most distinguished chapter president award in the Carolinas region. The region also inducted him into the Hall of Honors and presented him with the Most Distinguished Office Team award.
Brian is always eager to engage in activities related to Phi Theta Kappa, and leads workshops on team building at regional conferences. He devoted many hours to fundraisers and service projects for the chapter, and coordinated their “Feed a Mind, Feed a Body” event. This project collected food and books for local homeless shelters at each graduation ceremony, and Brian delivered the items collected.
According to his Phi Theta Kappa advisor, Susan Clarke, “Brian Mansfield is a true leader in every sense of the word. He sets a goal, sets a plan, and never ceases in the path to achieving the end result.”
In addition to his studies and leadership on campus, Brian is a resident manager at the Eugene Ashley Transition Home for men. He demonstrates his leadership abilities daily in supervising and advising residents as they transition back into society. His duties include group discussions, preparing the men for job interviews, and providing transportation to potential employers.
“Cape Fear Community College is proud to have contributed to Brian's educational experience, and we are fortunate that he chose Cape Fear to hone and implement his leadership skills,” shared Eric McKeithan, president of the college.
