Sheehey Associate Devin T. McKnight Graduates Lake Champlain Chamber’s Leadership Champlain Program

From Vermont Business Magazine:

“The 32nd cohort of the Lake Champlain Chamber’s Leadership Champlain program celebrated their graduation at Hotel Vermont earlier this week. Since 1989, Leadership Champlain has ensured the community’s most influential and esteemed leaders are knowledgeable about issues, well-networked and passionate about our region’s success. “This distinguished cohort of 35 community leaders were trailblazers as they completed their entire Leadership Champlain experience virtually,” says Program Director Tori Colarusso.  “They spent nine months becoming educated on the different challenges facing our community and serving local organizations while grappling with the many changes brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.  Their dedication to our community is inspiring.” The Leadership Champlain Class of 2021 completed service projects for Hunger Free Vermont, Turning Point Center of Chittenden County, Burlington Electric Department, Chittenden County Accountable Community for Health, Age Well and Burlington Rotary Club.”
