In recognition of its 30th anniversary in 2016, LHC members made a collective commitment to sustain the legacy of Leadership Howard County for future participants.

The LHC Board of Directors and the Premier Class of 2014 led the way in creating a 30th Anniversary campaign to ensure the future legacy of Leadership Howard County in these important ways:

  • Ensures the availability of financial assistance primarily offered to nonprofits and small business owners
  • Enables Leadership Premier and Leadership U to remain accessible to the full diversity of the community with affordable tuition.
  • Sustains the value of the program for a growing base of membership who will continue to make a positive impact on Howard County.

Each class since 2014 has committed to “Pay It Forward” with gifts that provide financial assistance to future LHC class members.

Leadership Howard County is one of hundreds of community leadership programs across the country that strive to support active, engaged citizens and help communities thrive. Since the first class graduated in 1986, LHC has had impressive impact: more than 1,2400 graduates have completed the Premier program, and it is estimated LHC alumni have volunteered more than 80,000 hours of support to Howard County nonprofits – equal to an investment of more than $2 million in our community.
