The 2017 Class of Presidential Leadership Scholars were announced, and Webster Police Chief Danny Presley was selected to participate in the prestigious program.
The Presidential Leadership Scholars program, a unique leadership development initiative that draws upon the resources of the presidential centers of George W. Bush, William J. Clinton, George H.W. Bush, and Lyndon B. Johnson, announced that Danny Presley had been selected to participate. Danny is one of 60 Scholars chosen for the program’s third annual class.
The third cohort was selected after a rigorous application and review process. Scholars were selected based on their leadership growth potential and the strength of their personal leadership projects aimed at improving the civic or social good by addressing a problem or need in a community, profession, or organization.
Over the course of several months, Scholars will travel to each participating presidential center to learn from former presidents, key administration officials, and leading academics. They will study and put into practice varying approaches to leadership, develop a network of peers, and exchange ideas with mentors and others who can help them make an impact in their communities.
The program kicked off in Washington, D.C. on February 7th, where Scholars visited the National Archives and Records Administration, Mount Vernon, and the White House Historical Association and explored personal and professional development areas including core values and civility.
The latest class joins the alumni network of 121 Scholars in the program. They include individuals from diverse backgrounds and geographies, coming from a variety of sectors, including private, public, non-profit, military, and academia.
