Dr. Sarah Guy, associate director of the Business, Economic and Community Outreach Network (BEACON) in Salisbury University’s Franklin P. Perdue School of Business, has been chosen to participate in the Leadership Maryland professional development program.
The program is dedicated to building a stronger Maryland by educating, cultivating and connecting the state’s brightest leaders. Guy is one of 52 business and community leaders chosen for Leadership Maryland’s 24th class, which will complete the eight-month hands-on learning program focused on the state’s most vital social, economic and environmental issues.
Following a two-day opening retreat in April, the class will attend five two-day intense sessions traversing the state exploring Maryland’s economic development, education, health and human services, criminal justice, the environment and multi-culturalism/diversity. These sessions will be followed by a one-day closing retreat in November and a graduation celebration in December. More than 100 experts representing business, government, education and the non-profit community will serve as panelists and guest speakers.
“The selection process for the Class of 2016 was very competitive this year, as we had an extraordinary pool of diverse and experienced applicants to choose from,” said Renée Winsky, president and chief executive officer of Leadership Maryland. “The 52 selected participants represent a diverse and broad spectrum of highly qualified executives from across the state, and we are confident that their Leadership Maryland experience will help them to play an even greater role in our unified effort to shape the future of our state.”
Leadership Maryland is open to senior-level executives with significant achievements in either their careers and/or their communities. Ideal members have a desire to learn more about Maryland’s most critical issues and a personal commitment to be a force for positive change in their organizations, communities and state.
