Three CEHS students selected as strengths coaches for 2024-25

08 Apr 2024    

Three College of Education and Human Sciences students were among the 46 University of Nebraska-Lincoln students selected to serve as new strengths coaches for the 2024-25 academic year by the Clifton Strengths Institute. 

The three new strengths coaches from CEHS are:

• Claire Kelly – sophomore – elementary education – Grand Island, Nebraska

• Makayla Larntz – sophomore – human development and family science – Chandler, Arizona

• Grace Nab – sophomore – nutrition and health sciences – Olathe, Kansas 

Kelly, Larntz, Nab and the other 43 new coaches will join more than 100 returning coaches to mentor about 1,000 new students enrolled in the College of Business’ Professional Enhancement I: Investing in Strengths (BSAD 111). The required course for all first-year business students empowers them to excel using their natural talents, learned from taking the CliftonStrengths assessment. Strengths coaches help new students develop as they learn to leverage their top strengths. 

All new coaches are required to enroll in Strengths Coaching, Theory and Practice (MNGT 451) this spring, where they learn about strengths-based development and techniques to maximize individuals’ potential. These skills are used to make positive impacts within the college and community, and in their professional careers. Each new strengths coach receives personalized guidance from experienced student mentors.
