Developing community leaders in transportation
As transportation consultants, it’s our responsibility to look for ways to develop and grow ourselves to better serve the communities around us. Involvement in associations, conferences and committees not only keep us informed, but helps us develop professionally, benefitting clients and the public we serve.
It’s with that in mind that I’m excited to share my upcoming involvement with the 2018 Leadership Lexington County class. LLC is a non-profit organization helping to develop local community leaders’ skills and capabilities, promote community growth and development, and propel the community forward.
I recently attended the LLC 2017 Class Graduation and 2018 Class Welcome Reception. Congratulations to all the 2017 graduates and especially our very own, Joey Derby. Joey says, “The experience is an excellent opportunity to forge new relationships within South Carolina while making Lexington a better place to live.”
As part of the program, each class performs a service project. The 2017 class chose to help the Nancy K. Perry Children’s Shelter. Since 1972, the Nancy K. Perry Children’s Shelter provides consistent residential care and nurture for children who are in crisis because of sexual or physical abuse, neglect and/or abandonment. Their class raised over $60,000 to build an on-site storage facility. The temperature-controlled building provides much-needed storage for the children’s home supplies.
I am not only proud of Joey and the entire 2017 class, but also excited to start my journey with LLC. Later this week, we kick off our 2018 class with our retreat. I’m looking forward to meeting my classmates, brainstorming service project ideas and leaving a lasting impact on Lexington County.
What ideas do you have for our service project? Are there needs in your own community to address? Let’s be part of the solution.
