Dr. Laura Leatherwood, LNC CLASS IX

Blue Ridge Community College

“Leadership NC came along at a time when I was new to my leadership role at the College and during a very formative time for me professionally.  I was in a place where I was trying to figure out how everything fits together, not only at my current position but within the state of North Carolina.  After I completed Leadership NC I was able to understand that the role of Community Colleges was part of a much larger picture in supporting the state of North Carolina.  LNC helped me put it all together.  It also taught me how the legislative process works and our state election system.  It was an AWESOME experience.”
