Hayden Lewis Headshot

I learned what leadership looks like in many fields as an Ed.D. student at Olivet Nazarene University. My dissertation was narrowed into my field of special education. But in my cohort, I learned from a nurse practitioner, a police officer, a detective, a higher education executive, a school principal and others about how to lead wherever I am.
