Tickets are on sale for a graduation luncheon honoring the Flagler County Chamber of Commerce & Affiliates’ 20th Leadership Flagler class.
The event is planned for Friday, June 22, at the Hilton Garden Inn Palm Coast/Town Center with lunch starting at noon. Eddie Creamer, CEO of Prosperity Bank, will be the guest speaker.
Leadership Flagler is one of nearly 700 nationwide programs that aim to shape high-profile community leaders. During the three-month program, participants gain insight and appreciation for key Flagler County operations including business, government, health and human services, art and culture, agriculture and growth management.
This year, the chamber will honor nine up-and-coming community leaders:
Matt Maxwell, Craig Flagler Palms Funeral Home
Shannon Kenton, JBirney Financial
Jim Russell, Flagler Chrysler Dodge Jeep
Jerusha Logan, Flagler County NAACP
Catherine Groom, Flagler County Chamber of Commerce
Deborah Williams, Flagler County Schools
Harmony Henry, Hammock Beach Resort
Amy Kerber, Preferred Management Services
John Distler, Servpro
Since its start in 1993, Leadership Flagler has graduated nearly 200 professionals. As a graduation requirement, each class is expected to come up with and undertake a community service project. Last year’s class held a Masquerade Ball that raised more than $7,000 for two local nonprofit organizations, the Josh Crews Fund and DonateYourMachine.org. This year’s graduates will reveal their class project during the luncheon.
Tickets are $20 for Leadership Flagler alumni and $22 for chamber members. Call 386-437-0106.
