The Hamilton County Leadership Academy recently received a $10,000 grant from Duke Energ. It is the largest grant the HCLA has received since 2009. According to Duke Energy officials, they value HCLA’s mission and building leaders in Hamilton County.
The HCLA is funded primarily by tuition, grants, sponsorship and personal donations.
“We are extremely excited to have been the beneficiary of such a significant grant from Duke Energy,” said Executive Director Jill Doyle. “It is clear Duke Energy is very committed to community organizations and we are thankful for their support of the development of leaders in Hamilton County.”
HCLA is a leadership development program that identifies and prepares informed leaders for our community. Program participants are brought together by their commitment of time, energy, expertise and their desire to be involved in Hamilton County.
The more than 500 graduates of the program are found throughout the community holding elected office, serving in appointed positions, and serving on local boards. They are local leaders who are working to create and sustain a thriving community for all of us to live, work and play.
