Jody Manning

Graduate Admissions LeMoyne College “As a 20-year graduate of LGS, I would highly recommend this program for any organization that wants to enrich and expand the leadership skills of its workforce. Several current administrators at OCM BOCES have graduated from LGS or are currently participating. As a result, I have witnessed and benefited first-hand from the knowledge, inspiration and empowerment this program provides for so many of our educational leaders in Central New York. Every organization should take advantage of this.”
