Ledyard Honors Leadership Upper Valley Graduates
Jun 12, 2019 -
Hanover, NH: On June 12, 2019, Michael Urnezis, Ledyard National Bank’s Senior Vice President of Mortgage and Consumer Lending, along with thirty representatives of local non-profit organizations and businesses, graduated from Vital Communities’ Leadership Upper Valley Program (LUV).
“I initially joined LUV to get a better understanding of our regional obstacles and opportunities including economic growth, housing, and education. The program gave me much more than the “what and why”. I gained broader regional perspective of our unique mix of needs, values, socioeconomics, and aspirations. This fresh perspective will lead to finding common ground, great relationships, and positive change.” stated Urnezis.
Ledyard congratulates all of the graduates of the Class of 2019 and is proud to be a supporter of Vital Communities’ as they continue to cultivate the civic, environmental, and economic vitality of the Upper Valley. Ledyard’s continued support of local organizations heralds their commitment as a community bank, remaining focused on the importance of living, working and buying local, providing a deeper understanding of what is essential to the individuals and businesses in the communities we serve.
LUV is a ten session intensive program that covers topics imperative to developing an understanding of the many nuances involved in sustaining a healthy community. From education and economic development, to the justice system and environmental awareness, this program led by Vital Communities’ Director of Development Rob Schultz, empowers Upper Valley leaders,
providing hands-on insight into the key components needed to lead in a sustainable and prosperous community.
