September 7, 2012By Corbin Murray
Two southeastern North Carolina residents have been accepted into the Leadership North Carolina (LNC) class of 2013.
Through a strict selection process, LNC has chosen Jennifer B. Harris of Wilmington and Mark H. Lennon of Ocean Isle Beach among the 54 participants in the group’s 20th annual class.
Harris is assistant to the chancellor for community partnerships at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. And Lennon is director of customized training and industry programs for James Sprunt Community College in Kenansville.
Through discussions with top officials, field trips and experimental learning activities, LNC participants will learn more about issues North Carolina is currently facing, as well as how to get more involved around the state. The program consists of six, two and a half day sessions that will focus on five key areas: economic development, education, environment, government and health and human services.
The members of the class will meet in Boone in October for an orientation session where they will be welcomed by former LNC member and participant, Appalachian State University chancellor Ken Peacock.
