Here is what past Leadership League City participants have said about the program:
"I only wish I had taken this class a lot earlier in my career. It is not just for people with top positions or those who are "bosses". This class can benefit all people no matter where you are in your career path. I learned a lot about leadership and what it means to lead. After completing the class, I feel much better and smarter about my position and the people I work with. I learned we all have a part and deserve a chance to excel in whatever we are trying to accomplish. Bonnie was so engaging and kept the class enjoyable. I would take it again if I could."
-- Betty Willis, Finance Director, United Way Galveston County Mainland
"Leadership League City surpassed every expectation that I had for the program. The interaction and relationships formed with all of the quality participants was one of my favorite aspects. We had an opportunity to hear from some outstanding leaders and professionals in our community over so many different fields of interest, there was never a dull moment. I highly recommend this program for anyone interested in learning and growing in their role as a leader and member of our community."
-- Erika Steele, Executive Director Lighthouse Christian Ministries
“This was the best community leadership program I’ve ever attended. The quality of course materials, instructors, and involvement in the community is top notch. This was an excellent investment.”
-- Leonard Woolsey, Publisher The Galveston County Daily News
