Leadership Wilkes-Barre Seeks Nominees

A committee comprised of the University’s Leadership Wilkes-Barre alumni will select a nominee from the University for Leadership’s 2018/19 class. Anyone interested in being the Wilkes nominee is asked to submit a letter of interest that addresses the following question:

How do you think the Leadership Wilkes-Barre program can help you fulfill your aspirations as a leader at Wilkes and in the Greater Wilkes-Barre area? 

If you have asked to be considered a candidate for Leadership Wilkes-Barre in previous years, the selection committee asks that you reconfirm your interest by submitting the aforementioned letter. Also, be sure to that you have the support of your supervisor before sending your letter.  Please send letters of interest via email to Paul Adams at paul.adams@wilkes.edu by the end of the day on Friday, March 30. 

Leadership Wilkes-Barre brings together new and emerging leaders throughout the greater Wilkes-Barre area to: 1) inform and expose participants to community concerns, problems, challenges, and potential solutions; 2) provide an opportunity for participants to meet and exchange ideas; and 3) motivate and encourage participants to assume leadership roles in community affairs.  Leadership Wilkes-Barre’s Core Program meets once each month from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m., September through May. The opening retreat requires a two-day commitment. Please visit the Leadership Wilkes-Barre web site if you would like to learn more about the program.

Those individuals include Paul Adams, Diane Polachek, Dorothy Lane, Rob Seeley, Diane O’Brien, Phil Ruthkosky, Kristine Pruett, Judy Kristeller, Bridget Giunta-Husted, Gabrielle D’Amico, Lisa Reynolds, Jason Wagner, Morgan Clevenger, Justin Kraynack, Michelle Garrison and Angela Greco.
