Leadership Evergreen celebrated 20 years since its inception in 1995 with a group of about 65 who have participated in some way over the years. The celebration took over the main dining room at The Bistro at Marshdale on Thursday, September 24th.
Co-founders Andy Petrick and Linda Kirkpatrick explained the genesis of the idea, and Kevin Ruble spoke to the group about "authentic leadership."
Peggy Eggers, co-president, announced that 175 participants have gone through the program with 15 more expected to graduate before the end of the year.
The statewide leadership program "Fifty for Colorado" was the template for the local endeavor to stimulate new leaders and further empower existing leaders to have a broader understanding of their community. Andy Petrick had participated in the 1993 program while he worked as President of the Evergreen Area Chamber of Commerce and then nominated Linda Kirkpatrick for consideration the following year.
