Professionals from various industries have completed a 10-month leadership program.
Leadership Prince William (LPW) in Manassas held its commencement ceremony for the class of 2019 on Thursday.
Graduates and alumni of the non-profit’s Signature Program attended the event, which was held in Colgan Hall at George Mason University’s (GMU) Science and Technology campus in Manassas.
Prince William County Police Department (PWCPD) Chief Barry Barnard and Will Archer from Potomac Valley Church in Woodbridge were among the speakers.
The Signature Program helps community members develop leadership skills they can use in the workforce and their daily lives.
LPW is accepting applications for next year’s Signature Program until June 28.
Bradley Marshall, member of the LPW Board of Regents, recommends the program to area professionals.
“Leadership Prince William changes how you look at our community, the issues it faces, and in the end, how you look at yourself and your role in that community,” Marshall said. “It’s an invaluable experience for anyone with a vested interest in the place we live, work, learn, and socialize, as well as the other people and stakeholders with which we share common values and goals.”
