National Society for Leadership and Success

NSLS LogoIn the June issue of the NSLS Newsletter, the President of the National Society of Leadership, Charles Knippen, inserted a quote from Andre Jerry, an Atlanta Chapter member.

"Wisdom is wealth that never diminishes-it only mutiplies"
 Andre Jerry, Mercer University 


We congratulate Andre for his submission and inclusion on the national office’s posting.  Wise words from a wise man.  If you didn’t receive the emailed newsletter, you can find it at NSLS newsletter.

Dr. John Mason, Co-Advisor


The Society is an organization that helps people discover and achieve their goals. The Society offers life-changing lectures from the nations leading presenters and a community where like-minded success oriented individuals come together and help one another succeed. The Society also serves as a powerful force of good in the greater community by encouraging and organizing action to better the world.

The guiding question we established to shape all the important decisions the organization makes is: "Are we helping the greatest number of people in the greatest way?" When asked how he might sum up the key thing that the Society does, founder Gary Tuerack shared "We are dream supporters – we build leaders, support people in achieving their dreams, and better the world in the process. We get people to ask the all important question 'What would you do if you knew you couldn't fail?' and then help them to achieve those goals."

Scholarships and Awards

The National Society of Leadership and Success offers numerous scholarships and grants that are available to our members to provide with financial assistance for higher education. 

We build leaders, support people in achieving their dreams, and better the world in the process.

Our vision for this program is to support the next generation of leaders and propel the future careers of those who embody the Society's values.
