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.

Although I have lived in Germantown since 1976 and have volunteered for many commissions and special task forces, I decided to join Leadership Germantown following my retirement from FedEx in 2001. I was interested in obtaining an enhanced “hands-on” perspective of the inner-workings of the City, as well as Memphis, Shelby County, and the State of TN. LG certainly served as a catalyst for me to become even more involved with volunteer opportunities in Germantown. I would encourage any resident interested in sharing experiences with a very dedicated and diverse group of residents to apply for Leadership Germantown in order to better understand all that our community offers.
