If you are interested in learning the behind the scenes of what makes Germantown such a great city, I highly recommend going through Leadership Germantown. You leave the program not only with knowledge of how to get involved, but also with a group of comrades you can call forever friends.

Leadership Germantown has been one of the most rewarding things I’ve done professionally and personally. Everything I have learned in LG has confirmed my love for our great city. It is well worth the time commitment!

Enriching experience. Learned a ton. Met many amazing people and I’m better for having been in the Class. Awesome! I wish everyone in Germantown could be aware of what a great community we have.

Fantastic!!! is exactly how I would describe my LG experience. Team Trek was an emotional rollercoaster and exactly the perfect way to bond us as a class.  Class sessions were well organized and structured to keep us occupied throughout the entire day.  And finally, our class project of renovating the Houston High School Greenhouse was the perfect culmination to make us work as a team and get the job done. I look forward to serving on the LG Board and was honored to be voted into that position by my peers. 2018 is the Best Class Ever!!

I graduated from Leadership Germantown in 2004, and I learned about the wonderful services we have with our local Germantown Police and Fire Departments. On our additional day trips, we were shown how our State, City, and County governments work, learned about the educational opportunities for Germantown’s children, and I found so many ways I could enjoy being a part of Germantown.  I have served on the Senior Commission, the Safety Commission, the Library Board, and am currently on the Neighborhood Preservation Commission. If you want to learn how to get involved, serve your city, make great friends, and have an awesome time doing it, go through Leadership Germantown.
