Educating, connecting and energizing leadersto serve and improve the community.
The one thing that was compelling to me about the program was the police ride around the city. The whole program is about introducing leaders to other parts of the community, parts like the poorer areas that they don’t often get to see. But for me, the ride was a reminder of how I grew up – very poor outside of Washington, D.C. Leadership Winston-Salem taught me that you have got to adopt the community; you have got to do your part and really own it.”
