Successful Junior Tackles Fears Head-On
When he came to Eastern Kentucky University from Pikeville three years ago, Dalton Stanley “would have balked” at the mere thought of speaking before hundreds of people or even privately to CEOs of large corporations.
But he was never too frightened to “see my weaknesses at face value and really tackle them.”
“Terribly afraid of public speaking,” he joined the University’s nationally prominent mock trial program.
“Not the best at interpersonal and leadership skills,” he became president of EKU’s chapter of Phi Beta Lambda.
Unsure of a career path at first, he decided on supply chain management and two other majors only after extensive research.
Now, after interviewing with Domino’s executives over a two-week period, Stanley is the first EKU student to land a prestigious global supply chain management internship with the regional office of food giant Domino’s in Erlanger, Kentucky. He will learn his project assignment shortly after he starts May 14.
