HCC celebrates Servant Leadership’s 20th anniversary with alumni/mentor special event

Freeport, Illinois — On Saturday, March 11, Highland Community College will be honoring and celebrating 20 years of Servant Leadership with special training and event. Current and former Servant Leadership participants and mentors are encouraged to attend to help celebrate the success and growth of the program.

The day opens with a 9 a.m. breakfast followed by a two-hour training session. Afterward, guests will gather for a noon luncheon followed with the Keynote Speaker Tammy Abell, who will lead an interactive session for all current and former Servant Leadership participants. Abell is from Greenville, Ohio.

“Tammy has been the program’s keynote, motivational, inspirational, and educational trainer for over 18 years. Students have always requested that we bring Tammy back year after year. Tammy has gifted Highland with her servant heart over the years, and the motto of HCC’s program ‘to change the world, we must touch the world’ was first birthed out of a training activity that she facilitated. It also captures her heart of service as a trainer and a longtime friend of Highland,” said Kim Pool, coordinator of HCC’s Servant Leadership program.

Current and former Servant Leadership participants and mentors are asked to visit highland.edu/servantleader20 to RSVP for the day’s events, provide background on their current activities, and detail how Servant Leadership has made a difference in their personal and professional life.

In addition, the Family YMCA of Northwest Illinois is providing free weekend passes to all individuals and their families for attending the special event.
