Celebrating a Milestone
In 1992, 16 community leaders convened to lay the foundation for the future of leadership in Thurston County. Their objective was to develop a renewable pool of informed, skilled and engaged civic leaders committed to making the South Sound a great place to live, work and play. The result was Leadership Thurston County, a program of the Thurston County Chamber Foundation.
Beginning with the first class of 1994 to the present, graduates have embraced their role as community stewards. From business executives to public officials to board members of charitable and civic organizations to hands-on volunteers, they share a passion and commitment for improving our community.
With the 20th Class of 2014, over 500 graduates have completed the Leadership Thurston County program. We are proud to celebrate this milestone!
