As one of the leading freshman leadership organizations on TAMU’s campus, MSC FISH, or Freshmen in Service and Hosting, serves to “provide leadership opportunities aimed at enhancing its members’ purpose and identity by engaging in community service and program development on campus and within the community.” In the words of member Destiny Cotto, all that means is that MSC FISH is dedicated to creating “servant leaders” on campus, and in the community. “MSC Fish intertwines leadership and service together,” Cotto says. She describes servant leadership as the “development of one’s self through servantship. It can be as simple as holding the door open for someone. Servant leadership has a very broad spectrum. Doing something good for a person or community may have a domino effect, which means you can also influence people around you to do good.”
MSC FISH accommodates for the diversity of skill sets among members. “Everyone is put into different subcommittees,” Cotto adds. “Service and Hosting, Kyle Field Day, Development, WAVES, and Outreach.” The subcommittee which she is a member of, WAVES, produces two events a year. For their upcoming Fall Speaker Workshop, the WAVES subcommittee has invited TAMU College of Architecture professor Dr. Stephen Caffey to speak on self-authorship and how to implement servant leadership in your daily life.
The MSC FISH Fall Speaker Workshop will take place on November 29 at 7 p.m. at the Memorial Student Center in room 2404. Everyone interested in learning about servant leadership is welcome to attend the free event.
Food and beverages will be served.
