Leadership Alumni

Leadership alumni represent the program's heart and soul. Program graduates are charged with the responsibility to become community stewards and apply the knowledge gained to their workplace environment and throughout the community. In turn, Leadership graduates earn the respect of area businesses and organizations, which recognize the program's importance and the benefits attained. This respect translates into a lifetime of friendships and future networking opportunities.
