Leadership Greater Syracuse Announces the Class of 2021


(December 3, 2020 – East Syracuse, NY) – Leadership Greater Syracuse (LGS) announces its 31st Class – the LGS Class of 2021.

“As evidenced over the last several months, excellent community leadership is as important as it has ever been,” said Pam Brunet, LGS executive director. “Whether it be serving on a board, working for social justice, or serving in an elected capacity, leadership matters and Central New Yorkers look to LGS to connect people to their passion,” said Brunet.

“The 43 participants in the Class of 2021 will be immersed in the issues and achievements of our community — and through the year-long program, they will be provided the tools and the connections they need to give back to CNY in a way that is significant to them,” said Brunet.

LGS teaches participants about community leadership, empowerment, group dynamics and community opportunities. Participants will be very current on trends in government, education, health, economic development, and diversity and inclusion. “LGS has a 30-year track record of inspiring people to make a difference in the community where we live and work,” Brunet said. A recent survey shows that 80 percent of all LGS graduates are still living in Central New York and have held more than 800 volunteer positions. “We are doing our part to prevent the brain drain,” she added.

The participants (listed below) represent a cross-section of citizens who live in all communities within Central New York. “The LGS Class of 2021 is diverse in gender, age, race, ability, residence, profession, volunteer interest and type of employer,” said Brunet.

Leadership Greater Syracuse was founded by Centerstate CEO, Onondaga County, the City of Syracuse and Onondaga Community College. It is financially supported by many organizations including United Radio, Community Bank and VIP Structures. Media sponsors include The CNY Business Journal News Network.  For more information about Leadership Greater Syracuse, visit http://www.leadershipgreatersyracuse.org.
