Gwinnett County has been my home all my life. I am a product of Gwinnett. I thought I knew it all. Through my professional and community network I was referred to Leadership Gwinnett's Glance Program. The 2.5 day program revealed to me so much more about the community and rose awareness to many issues I was unaware about. The people, organizations, and entities you meet and are exposed to are all first class. Everything you read, hear, see, and talk about during the program inspires you. My goal now is to inspire others by spreading what I saw and learned throughout my personal, professional, and community networks.
Glance Gwinnett made such a personal impact on me. Although I know Gwinnett quite well and work here, it was nice to be around a group of passionate and giving people. Sometimes we get caught up on the work aspect of life that we forget what really is important. Family, community, faith, etc. There was a lot of knowledge and experience during the two-day course. Glance Gwinnett was able to broaden my horizons. It reminded me that even I can be a leader in my community. Since the class I have kept in touch with several participants and understand the importance of passionate influence.
When I showed up for Glance Gwinnett, I didn't know what to expect. When I left after graduation, not only did I have a deeper understanding for Gwinnett County, but an appreciation for its growth and a personal commitment to contribute to its future success. I have lived in Gwinnett County my whole life, and I have never been more rooted here than after taking this course. I highly recommend it.
