Building Community through Leadership

Last week, CRP's own Colleen Cassidy graduated from the LNOW! Class of 2015.

This is a five month program affiliated with Leadership Pikes Peak in which 30 young professionals in the Colorado Springs Region are selected to participate. Throughout the semester, they learn how to develop various leadership skills, understand their personal roles in a community, are educated on both the social and governmental assets of Colorado Springs and expand their business development networks. 

During their five months, these young professionals are also broken into four smaller project groups to complete a semester long deliverable for a local non-profit. Colleen worked alongside a team of seven individuals to create a case development campaign for the locally known Rocky Mountain Field Institute (RMFI). CRP is also proud to announce that Colleen was voted by her peers as the recipient of the 2015 Community Trustee Award for her work on this project - going above and beyond throughout the duration of the project and exemplifying the traits of a community leader.
