Graduate Leadership Savannah
Graduates of Leadership Savannah, the second oldest such organization in the country, have helped build one of the most effective leadership training programs in existence today. Program improvements over the years have resulted in positive and significant accomplishments by our graduates in this community and in the state of Georgia.
One of the accomplishments achieved is the opening of the Bandshell at Forsyth Park. The class of 1992-94 took on this project. They spent years working on this project and are now able to see it come to fruition. The grand opening took place on February 12, 2010.
The Graduate Leadership Savannah Program is looking for all graduates of any class. There is a committee collecting e-mail addresses of anyone who has graduated from Leadership Savannah in order to keep in touch and keep you informed of programs that are coming up. Please e-mail Margaret Mary Russell at email@example.com with your e-mail address so that you can be added to the database.
