Dominiqua Fritts Selected as Chancellor for a Day, November 10
Dominiqua Fritts is from Asheville, North Carolina and is a junior majoring in Criminal Justice. She has been on the Dean’s List and the Chancellor’s Honors List consistently at FSU. Having taken courses in Forensic Science, she wants to be a crime scene investigator for the FBI when she graduates. Dominiqua is a member of The Marketing Club, NABCJ (National Association of Blacks in Criminal Justice), and The Student United Way at FSU. She is proud to be Miss NABJA for the 2010-2011 school year.
Dominiqua has strong commitments to the community and believes in reaching back and giving back. Fayetteville’s Find a Friend Program, and The Salvation Army’s Feed the Homeless are two places in the community in which she volunteers much of her time. During the holidays, she speaks to high school students on the value of studying hard and getting an education. Coupled with her academic work and community service, she works as a Certified Nurse’s Assistant to help pay for her college expenses. She takes pride in her time management skills and believes in going above and beyond to get the job done.
“I want to be Chancellor for a Day because I believe it would be a great experience to learn a little more about exactly how Dr. Anderson runs his day as being FSU’s Chancellor. It is also a great opportunity to see some of the things he has to handle on a day-to-day basis. I also, believe that an experience such as this can further enhance my leadership skills,” stated Dominiqua.
The Chancellor for a Day program was instituted by Chancellor James A. Anderson and is designed to enable students to gain a better understanding of the day-to-day operations of the University by shadowing the Chancellor for one day. The student selected participates in all of the activities and meetings scheduled for the Chancellor. The main goals of the program are to: 1.) give students an opportunity to be a part of the administrative process; 2.) emphasize the role of the student in the university; 3.) give students experience in the decision making process; and 4.) enable students to gain some understanding of the leadership skills required for managing a multifaceted organization and the synergy required for operating as a whole.
