Last night I was honored to attend the graduation of this class. As the 25th class of this program, they set a goal to raise $25,000 for Amanda's House - a local version of a Ronald McDonald House for those and their families undergoing treatment at Glens Falls Hospital. To say this goal was next to impossible to reach would have been an understatement. Never ever In the history of this program has anything been done that would even come close.
When it was announced that this team of 19 community leaders worked to raise almost $51,000 to re-open and support the ongoing efforts of Amanda's House, everyone in the room was speechless. This group, as leaders, made the impossible possible. They demonstrated to themselves and to everyone in this community that a leader is an ordinary person with extraordinary determination.
Hats off to the 2014-15 Leadership Adirondack Class known from this day forward as The Best Class EVER!
