Announcing the Members of LNC Class XXV

Leadership North Carolina is pleased to share the roster for LNC Class XXV (2017-2018) and to welcome these fifty-five outstanding leaders to the LNC program. These individuals represent the state’s business, government, education, and nonprofit sectors and reflect the diversity of the state from the mountains to the coast. They were selected from a competitive applicant pool based on their personal and professional accomplishments and their commitment to the state of North Carolina.

Over the next eight months this group will meet in locations across the state for sessions that include presentations, simulations, tours, experiential learning activities, and dialogue. They will learn about the challenges and opportunities facing North Carolina in the areas of government, economic development, education, the environment, and health and human services.
