When someone truly remarkable pursues their own potential to change the world.
SHAD has adopted the tag-line Uncommon Purpose: SHAD participants are unique individuals with strong personal and educational attributes whose experience at SHAD helps surface their strengths and their personal confidence, and enables them to aspire to do extraordinary things as future leaders and change makers.
SHAD alumni include thought leaders and digital revolutionaries, CEOs and academic superstars. These are people who push the envelope of what’s possible whether they spend their time in labs, office suites or on the international stage. They are using their abilities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics as the catalyst to bring new ideas and new industries to life. They follow different paths and pursue various fields, but they have the commonality of adventurous minds, entrepreneurial spirit and natural leadership. And they have shared values of excellence and creativity that they share with their communities both at work and in life as a whole. Their accomplishments are too numerous to list but we have captured some highlights.
“At SHAD, we want young people to embrace their Uncommon Purpose, and help them envision their ability to solve important problems and bring about real, positive change,” said Tim Jackson, SHAD President and CEO.
