September Connections Newsletter

Posted on: September 8, 2017


A note from Janice Way, President:
 As fall arrives, we know that means a busy schedule ahead for Leadership Kentucky and opportunities for alums to reconnect. We hope you will RSVP for the special Maker's Mark Alumni Reception on September 20.  We also are asking you to spread the word about ELEVATE and encourage young leaders you know to apply (see details below). 

As excited as we are about the upcoming season, we can't help but reflect on a great summer! Just last month we visited Maysville and heard from Miss America 2000 Heather French Henry and went underground at Carmeuse Lime and Stone. Next week, we're headed to Frankfort and Georgetown for the Government and Industry session on September 14 and 15. A special thank you to the alums who are speaking and those who helped to organize the day. 

Finally, we are always looking for news and updates about our incredible alumni. Please share accomplishments, awards or celebrations with us! 

Be sure to note these important dates below. We look forward to seeing you in Loretto!
