Announcing the LFS Adult Class of 2021

Jun 22, 2020

Each year, 35 of the area’s next generation of leaders embark on a 10-month journey known as the Leadership for Five Seasons (LFS) Adult program. LFS is a premier community leadership program that focuses on developing top talent through a formal leadership curriculum. LFS provides participants with community knowledge, connections and inspiration to make a positive impact on the community. Participants are selected from area businesses, public and private agencies, civic and other organizations. The LFS Class of 2021 marks the 38th anniversary of the Adult program. Leadership for Five Seasons also has an Executive and Youth program.

Thanks to Scholarship Sponsor Shive-Hattery Inc., a scholarship was offered this year to provide opportunity for an individual employed by a small business or nonprofit or self-employed to be part of the class. Those three industries are historically the most underrepresented in LFS. Carissa Johnson of Cedar Rapids Freedom Festival is the LFS Adult Class of 2021 scholarship recipient.

Congratulations to the LFS Adult Class of 2021!
