SCRANTON — Leadership Lackawanna recently honored its 2016 core program graduates at a Celebration of Leadership dinner and graduation ceremony at The Leonard Theater. The event included business networking, games and raffles, a buffet dinner and cocktails, a community service project showcase, a presentation of certificates and a presentation of annual awards.
Over the past 10 months, Leadership Lackawanna participants gained relevant skills and an enhanced understanding of the issues and topics relevant to the greater Scranton area.
More specifically, participants met key business and community leaders as they received an overview of Lackawanna County’s history and culture, economic and political structures, community events, civic groups, recreational activities and non-profit organizations through various monthly sessions. Class participants were also assigned to complete various community service projects that addressed a need and resulted in a tangible end product.
