The Columbia Future Leaders Dialogue Dinner was a wonderful night where students and faculty members from Allen University, Columbia College, University of South Carolina, Benedict College, Midlands Tech and Morris College gathered together at the Columbia Marriott on November 2, 2017 for the Annual Future Leaders Dialogue Dinner. “The Role of Leaders in Community Building” was the theme for the discussion on this evening. We were very fortunate to be able to spend an evening gaining a little insight into other cultures and having some great discussion about what it means to be a leader. Thank you again to our speaker Senator Katrina Frye Shealy who gave us her examples of being a great leader.
The lucky ones among our guests that won this year’s trip to Columbia for the Leadership Bridge day were chosen by raffle and they are Ruthlie Israel, Shakiera Williams, Alyssa Scott, Elizabeth Dunn and Delores Mosesel. They will be going to the South Carolina Capitol State House in March to meet with local politicians and participate in a Leadership meal.
We give special thanks to all of the sponsoring departments for making this program possible. We would also like to give out a special thanks to Flavia Eldemire from Allen University, a long time supporter of this program and a wonderful MC this year.
