Congratulations to the LCP Class of 2024

The Foundation of the Columbia Montour Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the Leadership Central Penn (LCP) Class of 2024 graduation, which took place on May 16, 2024 at Ponduce Farms in Elysburg. During a formal ceremony, Josh Nespoli, Deputy Director of Community Strategies Group offered a keynote address. Sarah Slusark, of Geisinger (LCP Class of 2024), reflected on the year-long program and the lessons learned therein.

Following these remarks, class members presented their community impact projects. LCP members split into three groups to maximize their community impact and partnered with three nonprofits serving our communities. One project helped run STEM exhibits as part of the Bloomsburg Children Museum’s annual Hak4kids Day. A second group worked with the Ronald McDonald House organizing storage spaces, cleaning up outdoor areas, and volunteering at a fundraising event at a Bucknell women’s basketball game. The final group worked with Camp Victory. They served a community Turkey Dinner, volunteered at Night of Nature, an annual fundraising event, and assisted with cleaning up cabins for summer camps. All these projects were demanding but fulfilling to the LCP class, their nonprofit partners, and community members impacted by these organizations.

The ceremony concluded with the awarding of graduation certificates. Congratulations to the following graduates:
