The Hamilton County Leadership Academy celebrated its 25th anniversary June 9 with a luncheon at the Ritz Charles in Carmel. More than 240 HCLA alumni and friends attended the event, which featured a panel discussion moderated by Legacy Fund President Terry Anker.
Panelists – including Westfield Mayor Andy Cook, Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear, Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness, County Commissioner Christine Altman and Nancy Heck, the city of Carmel’s Director of Community Relations and Economic Development – shared personal leadership stories and their thoughts on leading fast-growing Hamilton County into the future.
Attendees also contributed more than $5,000 to support Hamilton County Leadership Academy activities.
