LLA News:

Enrollment is open through June 25 for the Leadership Los Alamos Class of 2017 and everyone is welcome to apply.

Between now and then, the Los Alamos Daily Post is publishing a series of Q&A profiles on recent LLA graduates who talk about their experience in the program.

Leadership Los Alamos is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3), tax exempt organization founded to identify current and emerging leaders in the Los Alamos community, enhance their leadership skills, and deepen their knowledge of the challenges and opportunities facing our area.

In the Leadership Los Alamos program, participants learn as much about themselves as they do about leadership, teamwork and the community. To learn more, visit About Leadership Los Alamos and Applying to the Program.

The Leadership Los Alamos profile series continues with Donna McHenry of the Los Alamos Fire Department:

LLA: How many years have you lived and/or worked in Los Alamos? 

McHenry: I moved to Los Alamos in May of 2009.

Why did you enroll in Leadership Los Alamos? 

McHenry: Because I was new to the town I was interested in learning more about what our community had to offer.

LLA: What was your biggest “take-away” from the class?

McHenry: What a great adventure the class was. I learned so many things about Los Alamos, Bandelier, and the Valle Caldera. We are so fortunate to live in a place that offers so many resources to the citizens here. From the youth center, to the Nature Center, we are blessed. I met some great people along the way and have used these connections to help me promote LAFD’s public service events.

LLA: What are you doing with what your learned?

McHenry: Using my knowledge, skills, and abilities learned to promote health and safety in Los Alamos County.
