Leadership Perimeter announced the first graduating class under its new moniker.
A total of 34 graduates who took part in a nine-month leadership development program were honored in a ceremony held May 11 at Temple Sinai in Sandy Springs.
“We are so proud of this great class and their enthusiasm to be more civically engaged leaders,” Executive Director Rosalyn Putnam said in a statement. “This is the supportive culture we’ve set out to create within our communities and we’re excited to see their impact.”
Leadership Perimeter was formerly Leadership Sandy Springs. The nonprofit changed its name earlier this spring to expand the organization’s brand and include business leaders in Dunwoody and Brookhaven.
