Greetings everyone! We at LAKV hope you all enjoyed your Summers. It sure has been a busy Summer of recruitment and program updates on our end. We wrapped up LAKV Class XXIV in May and wish that class the best of luck in their future endeavors.
June dawned bright & beautiful for LAKV as our Board & Program Manager began the process of recruiting a very special class. What’s so special about it? It’s Class XXV! That’s right, LAKV is ready to begin it’s 25th class of “growing tomorrow’s leaders today” this October.Â
In the midst of all our recruiting, change, and opportunity came knocking at LAKV’s door. Change came when Diane Chabal, our Program Manager of 11 years decided to accept a position with the University of Pittsburgh. Diane’s tenure at LAKV was one of activity, growth, and strengthening the program. We thank her for her many years of service.
Opportunity knocked with the ability to hire a new Program Manager and use that new leader to brush off some of the cobwebs and dust that had been festering and lurking in the unseen areas of LAKV.
We’re excited to announce that we answered opportunity’s knock and hired Michele Pastrick, SPHR, SHRM-SCP as LAKV’s new Program Manager. Michele comes to us with over two decades of experience in Human Resources and consulting. She brings a breath of fresh air, raw enthusiasm and great ideas to expand LAKV’s program and tailor it to keep us focused on “growing tomorrow’s leaders today.”
It’s a new LAKV, celebrating a milestone anniversary and ready to usher in the newest leaders to the Alle-Kiski Valley. Join us for the ride and Apply Today for Class XXV. We’re accepting applications untilÂ September 15, 2016.Â
