How do our communities develop and engage informed, connected, and emerging leaders who have a deep understanding of all aspects of our communities to guide ideas, innovation and decisions that shape our future?
The Foundation asked this question in July 2018. Such development has been happening in Winston-Salem since 1983 through Leadership Winston-Salem (LWS), but there is no equivalent development opportunity in our communities. Many Clemmons and Lewisville residents have benefited from LWS and yet, with its focus on the past, present, and future of Winston-Salem, graduate leaders are not similarly prepared to engage in Clemmons, Lewisville and surrounding communities. Thanks to the support of LWS and the enthusiasm of the Lewisville-Clemmons Chamber of Commerce, the Clemmons Community Foundation hosted a luncheon with LWS alums to explore starting Leadership Lewisville-Clemmons. A group of LWS alums led by Lewisville Mayor Mike Horn and members of the Chamber have been exploring and developing Leadership Lewisville-Clemmons, expected to be a new and ongoing annual program of LCCC targeted for launch in 2019. The Foundation is honored to be a part of this project and is looking forward to the growth this project will bring our community. Currently a team of eight leaders meets monthly to discuss and develop this program.
