Nashville Mayor Speaks to Belmont StudentCPT

Nashville Mayor Megan Barry
On March 22, 2017, Nashville Mayor, Megan Barry, spoke to the Belmont StudentCPT chapter about ethics in her career, identifying your ethical lens and a variety of other leadership principles. She also discussed the responsibility of being a leader, while mentioning that she believes being in power means that you are in position to positively impact the lives of others.

She also noted that while people often ask her how long she has been on office, she focuses on a different number…how many days she has left. Mayor Barry believes this number is far more important because it reminds her how many days she has left to positively impact the lives of others.

Dr. Patrick Rains, Dean of Belmont’s business school, welcomed students to the meeting, then West Bielstein provided the audience with an introduction of Mayor Barry. Mayor Barry spoke for approximately 35 minutes during an interactive presentation, in which she routinely polled the audience and brought volunteers to the front of the room to participate in role plays.

Chapter Vice President, Katie Canfield, then fielded questions from the audience for the Mayor including a few of her own. The meeting closed with Professor Harold Folgerberg thanking everyone for attending the meeting, followed by a meet and greet session where Mayor Barry spoke with students and allowed them to take photos together.

The CPT commends the Belmont StudentCPT Chapter for hosting such an outstanding event. Click the following link to see more photos from this event:
