"I was a member of the most recent class (2011). The Leadership Morris Program offered me a perspective on the county that I never could have had. The network that I have built is invaluable. It is difficult to think of any challenge that I would have that I could not find a resource to help from the knowledge I gained and people I met. The program also encouraged me to join a board for a non-profit which has been an incredibly rewarding experience."
