Welcome Class of 2019!

Another school year is upon us, and we’re thrilled at the prospect that a new class brings to Mesa Leadership. This year’s group is again a diverse blend of Mesa employees, nonprofit sector representatives, and a mix of health care, legal and tech-related  professionals.

“This year, we really want to focus in on leadership development exercises,” Curriculum co-chair Diana Clevenger explained to the group. “That may seem obvious, but each class we want to further engage the class in exploring how you can become better leaders and understand the style of leadership that best fits you.”

So, congratulations and best wishes for a challenging and fun year to the Class of 2019:
