Leadership Arlington Graduates 36

Leadership Arlington celebrated the graduation of the second Young Professionals Program class, completing a four-month leadership development program. Thirty-six emerging leaders from across the D.C. metro region join Leadership Arlington's 800 members representing 500 organizations.

The Jan. 25 graduation ceremony was held at Marymount University's Ballston Campus with over 100 friends and family attending. Michael Foster, principal and owner at MTFA Architecture and chair-elect of Leadership Arlington's Board of Regents spoke to the class in a keynote address. The class elected Sarah Morse, volunteer & special events coordinator at A-SPAN and Carlton Crockett, director of distribution at AFAC as speakers to represent the Class of 2012.

Throughout this program, class members heard from a variety of key players in Arlington County's business, nonprofit and public sectors. They participated in a panel discussion with leaders of the Founder's Square Project, toured the Arlington County Jail, and shared their "vision for the community" with County Board Chair Mary Hynes and County Board Member Jay Fisette.
