As we gather around our respective tables today, we couldn't help but reflect upon how thankful we are for our supporters this year.
1. Your early support and trust gave us the ability to prove ourselves to you,
2. Which allowed us to reach eight fellows, compared to four in 2015.
3. These fellows were given the opportunity to lead in meaningful work experiences,
4. But it wasn’t easy; they acquired skills to grow and thrive professionally
5. As well as developed further direction in their career goals.
6. And now they continue their journey in a vibrant network of alumni working to effect change.
Without our community of supporters who are driven to #GiveLeadership, none of this work would be possible. We're serious. And we're seriously grateful.
