“There are too many highlights to Longwood University’s Educational Leadership program to name just one. Through flexible classes, I received an extraordinary education from professionals working in my chosen field who ensured I had many opportunities to experience being an administrator and leader. I feel thoroughly prepared for the next professional role I step into, but since the day I began this program, I’ve been able to grow as a leader in my current role.”
