Leadership Training Institute Recognizes Certificate Recipients


Lumia, Crislyn, Nation's Cities Weekly


More than 200 people gathered to recognize and honor certificate recipients in the Leadership Training Institute's (LTI) Certificate of Achievement in Leadership Program at the LTI Seminar Participant and Recognition Luncheon during the Congress of Cities in Salt Lake City

The Certificate of Achievement in Leadership Program offers four levels of achievement and recognition in an effort to make the engaging program attainable by local officials at any point during their term of public service. Recognition levels include: Bronze: Leadership Fellow; Silver: Leadership Executive; Gold: Leadership Ambassador; and Platinum: Leadership Statesman.

To kick off the luncheon program, 12-year-old-guest speaker Austin Brooke Lane, winner of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School District Essay Contest, spoke to the participants and then read her winning essay on "What Qualities Make a Good Community Leader?" Upon her completion, she received a standing ovation from the luncheon attendees. Leadership Training Council (LTC) Chair Charles D. Jennings said in jest, "I hope when this young lady is President of the United States that I am not too old and she keeps me in mind for a Cabinet position."

The LTI and the LTC recognized the 49 recipients in an award presentation. The Certificate of Achievement in Leadership Program "Fall Class of 2002" consisted of 11 Silver Certificate recipients and 38 Bronze Certificate recipients.

Jennings presented those in attendance with their certificates. Nettle Washington, and Rhonda Calhoun, council vice-chairs, assisted Jennings with the presentation.

The 11 NLC members who were acknowledged for their achievement the Silver Certificate level include: Mary Cartwright, Nacogdoches, Tex.; Mike Dispenza, Palmdale, Calif.; Daniel Fitzpatrick, Oak Park, Mich.; Claire Freda, Leominster, Mass.; Vivian Gaunt, Orange, N.J.; Carl Harris, Newton, Kan.; Charles Jennings, Arkansas City, Kan.; Bettie Jeter, Seat Pleasant, Md.; James Mitchell Jr., Charlotte, N.C.; Sharon Richardson, Federal Heights, Colo.; and Susan Stockard, Longview, Wash.
