Congratulations to Jeneen Slack, who joined the ranks of Summit advisors to successfully complete the fantastic program offered through Leadership San Ramon Valley. Among those in attendance at the graduation ceremony were Summit’s very own Steve Wilcox and Brendan Noonan – both alumni of the program— along with San Ramon Mayor, Bill Clarkson, and DDA Dominique Yancey.
The program is designed to develop each participant’s community knowledge and hone their leadership skills. The class of 2017 attended 10 daylong sessions that focused on topics such as community services, local government, education, cultural arts, community economics and regional planning, and met with elected officials and local experts in those fields.
This year’s graduates also participated in a community service project that raised a whopping $10,000 for Discovery Counseling Center, a non-profit organization based in Danville that provides affordable, quality mental health services for children and teens dealing with stress, anxiety, and depression.
