Leadership provided me with a view of all of the different aspects of life and living in St. Tammany Parish. Attendance should be required for all our residents!

Leadership St. Tammany enhanced my community involvement to that of being a Leader in the community and the organizations of which I served.  After the program, I was asked to serve as Chairman for two non-profit boards, and also several Executive Committees.  My career also advanced to the Executive and Management level – all of which I attribute to the skills and knowledge of a very powerful program in Leadership St. Tammany.

As a native of Mandeville, I grew up with a great sense of pride and appreciation for this community.  As a graduate of Leadership St. Tammany, I gained a better understanding and knowledge of the various components that work together to ensure the continued successes of our community.  The LST program not only gave me a better insight of our parish, but also how I can play a role as a more informed citizen.

The Leadership St. Tammany program exposed me to the breadth of challenges facing our community and presented a honest, behind-the-scenes look at the operations of our cities and Parish. All of the topics were eye opening, however I was most deeply affected by seeing the real needs of some youth in our own back yard. I have developed lifelong relationships from the program and have been inspired by fellow classmates to join them in community service. Thank you Leadership St. Tammany, and all past and future graduates, for your role in our community!

Without reservation, I can say that Leadership St. Tammany has changed the trajectory of my life. I am a better man…a better leader…a better servant…and a better friend. I’m convinced I would not now be leading a non-profit organization if it were not for Leadership St. Tammany.

“Communities are built by the people willing to invest in them. Leadership St. Tammany has a mission to cultivate the culture of deep investment in our community to support those who wish to lead the charge in building it. I was fortunate to be a part of this excellent program and feel strongly that Leadership St. Tammany helped prepare me for the vital role I am so privileged to serve in today.”

“I was raised in St Tammany and I didn’t realize how much I “didn’t know” about my community until I joined Leadership St Tammany.”

“Leadership opened my eyes to my community around me. I was enlightened to the many strengths in this parish as well as it’s weaknesses. I graduated from Leadership feeling empowered – armed with knowledge to institute good change in my community and the people I serve and with the support of a new network of like-minded individuals.”
