32nd Class of LEA Celebration Luncheon

December 13, 2019 @ 11:45 am - 1:00 pm

32nd Class of Leadership Emporia Academy Celebration Luncheon


The 32nd Class of Leadership Emporia Academy will be recognized at their Celebration Luncheon on Friday, December 13, 2019, beginning at 11:45 a.m., at the Flint Hills Technical College.


Over the past three-and-one-half months, Leadership Emporia Academy has been exploring skills and techniques to work with others, across factions, to create an environment for the better; ways of engaging the unusual voices that are often not heard. Participants are challenged to ask and answer tough questions about themselves and our communities. Leadership Emporia Academy provides learning through powerful experiences that provide conceptual frameworks, skills, tools, and ways of being consistent with a more purposeful and collaborative leadership approach.


Leadership Emporia Academy could not happen without the numerous volunteers who have put the program together. This year’s Celebration Lunch Sponsor is Sparklight and Program Contributor is Subway.


Help the 32nd Class of Leadership Emporia Academy celebrate their accomplishments!  Seating is limited, and reservations must be made by noon, Friday, December 6, by calling the Chamber at 342-1600, email vstephens@emporiakschamber.org, or on-line by clicking here.  Lunch is $15 a person.
