Dawn Daly-Mack of Northampton County and the ACO coordinator for Rural Health Group was one of 55 civic and community leaders across the state to graduate from the 27th class of Leadership North Carolina.
The class held a virtual graduation ceremony last week.
Leadership North Carolina called this class the most adaptable class ever as its members completed the program through the novel coronavirus pandemic as well as other disruptions.
They will have a formal graduation ceremony when circumstances allow, LNC said in a press release.
Each year, through a rigorous selection process, LNC chooses a class of established and emerging leaders from across the state to participate in its acclaimed program.
Leadership North Carolina’s Class XXVII comprises top leaders from the government, business, nonprofit, and education sectors.
Leadership North Carolina’s mission is to inform, develop, and engage committed leaders by broadening their understanding of and involvement in issues and opportunities facing North Carolina.
The Leadership North Carolina Program cultivates a network of individuals with diverse backgrounds and experiences who share a deep commitment to their state.
There are more than 1,200 graduates of the program whose continued ties to LNC and to one another provide them with rich opportunities for serving North Carolina.
Over the course of five two-and-a-half day sessions the members of LNC Class XXVII learned about issues critical to the state through discussions with top officials and professionals, field trips, and experiential learning activities.
LNC’s sessions focused on five key areas: economic development, education, environment, government, and health and human services.
LNC sessions are held around the state, highlighting the social, geographic, and economic diversity of North Carolina.
The members of Class XXVII visited Boone, Raleigh, Greensboro, Charlotte, and New Bern before the coronavirus postponed their Asheville session and their graduation ceremony. Through LNC’s program, participants gained new insight into North Carolina’s strengths and challenges and developed their own priorities for ways they can improve and empower their communities and the state as a whole.
