Developing Leadership

In Uncategorized on December 5, 2013 at 7:39 am

My husband was recently a part of the 10th class to graduate from the Hispanic Leadership Institute-West’s program. In layman’s terms, the 10-week institute helps people like my husband connect passion with purpose so they can positively impact the lives of people our community.

He stood alongside a policeman, community college administrator, human resources manager, secretary and hotel marketing manager to receive his certificate of completion. Each individual wrote a pledge, articulating how he or she will use this education and newly expanded network to change the lives of neighbors.

As I took pictures of his graduating class and also snapped photos with our friends, City of Avondale Mayor Marie Lopez Rogers and Senator Anna Tovar, I noticed my stepson watching proudly from the sidelines. He was learning what it takes to serve our community, catching a glimpse of what his own future can hold.
