I have also learned how to effectively network as well as host a diverse population of individuals and groups. Lion Leader has enabled me to hone my communication skills and time management skills while providing several service opportunities. Thank you WSCC Lion Leaders!"
-Cutter Green, 2020-2022 Lion Leader

“The Lion Leader program has impacted me in countless ways during my time at Wallace State. I have been able to experience and contribute to the high profile events the Future Foundation host and plan. This has given me the chance to network with people that I normally would not be able to encounter, and it has provided me with a newfound confidence when having conversations with people I meet. I have been able to work alongside other Lion Leaders, and develop friendships that I will cherish.  Due to the Lion Leader Program, I have had many opportunities come my way, and for that I am forever grateful!”
