Welcome Leadership Henderson Class of 2015 

Please welcome the newest members of Leadership Henderson, the Class of 2015! We had our largest, most competitive application pool in the history of Leadership Henderson. It was no easy task for the Selection Committee to narrow it down to 30 people. We appreciate our many alumni that helped us to recruit the finest in Southern Nevada - you WILL be receiving "Best Class Ever" points if they listed your name on their application. We couldn't have done it without the help of our wonderful volunteers that made up the Selection Committee. Thank you to our Selection Committee Chairman, John Harvey '09 and to all that helped with interviews - Jane Armstrong '03, Barbara Geach '03, Linda Gerstenberger '09, Michael Keaton '10, Courtney Lancaster '13, John LeChuga '05, Margaret McKenzie '13, Marilyn Ming '10, David Ortlipp '14 and Caprice Thurlow '14.

We had a great time at the beautiful Lake Las Vegas, thank you to our Retreat Sponsor and host, Aston MonteLago Village Resort. As usual, Randy McCrillis of Elements Consulting did a fantastic job leading the retreat. A special shout out to our small group facilitators: Bill Bokelmann '13, Micah Phillips '14, Ronna Timpa '06, Victor Leach '08 and Courtney Lancaster '13.

Steering Committee 
There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes that makes the Leadership Henderson program run so smoothly. The Steering Committee is the heart of the program and our committee members go above and beyond to ensure a successful program, Rebecca Fay couldn't live without them!  They help to plan everything from retreats, to Leadership days, alumni events and even help acquire sponsors. All aspects of the program are alumni driven, there are far too many people to thank in one newsletter, so a BIG thank you to our many volunteers...you know who you are!

Elite Alumni
We did it! We met our elite goal of $10,000! Elite alumni are graduates that give back to the program financially. Their donations really add up, helping to offset program costs and providing support for alumni gatherings. As a way to thank our elite alumni for their support, we plan awesome elite alumni events throughout the year. CLICK HERE to see a picture from our most recent event at Pinot's Palette.

Nancy SmithThank you to Nancy Smithy '10, who planned some really great events last year. We were VIPs at the Frankie Moreno Show, where we had his own sparkling wine served at our table. We rocked out at the Rock Vault at the LVH and received a VIP welcome reception and tour of their high roller suites, it was amazing! Most of our elite alumni events are free or heavily discounted. Look out for upcoming events on the private Facebook Leadership Group, via email or on the website calendar.  


Where Are They Now? 

Michael Kallhoff, a graduate of the Class 2010, left Henderson to become the President/CEO of United Way of the Wine Country in Santa Rosa, California. Not only is he surrounded by the beautiful wine country, he and his family are also thriving.
