Leading Ladies

Connect. Create. Change.

Celebrate!

Carol Burgess and LouAnn Shawver

Who are we?
We are not your typical group (no boring meetings)
We’re social (only join if you like to have fun)
We’re dynamos (just watch us get things done)
We are young and old (a wonderful mix of multi-generational women)

What do we care about?
Philanthropy
Education
Community Partnerships
Building our social network

What do we support financially?
We support the Clark Promise, which gives residents peace of mind knowing they will always have a home at Clark, despite unexpected financial challenges. And we go beyond Clark by supporting other local charities that our members care about.
