Record Observer - - COMMUNITY -

AN­NAPO­LIS — Lead­er­ship Mary­land an­nounced March 8 that Lu­cille “Lu­cie” Hughes, vice pres­i­dent for In­sti­tu­tional Ad­vance­ment at Ch­e­sa­peake Col­lege, has been cho­sen to par­tic­i­pate in the pro­fes­sional devel­op­ment pro­gram ded­i­cated to building a bet­ter Mary­land by har­ness­ing the strength of its lo­cal busi­ness and community lead­ers. Hughes is one of 52 in­di­vid­u­als cho­sen for Lead­er­ship Mary­land’s 25th class — the Class of 2017 — who will com­plete the eight-month hands-on learn­ing pro­gram fo­cused on the state’s most vi­tal so­cial, eco­nomic and en­vi­ron­men­tal is­sues.

Fol­low­ing a two-day open­ing re­treat in April, the class will at­tend five two-day in­tense ses­sions travers­ing the state fo­cus­ing on Mary­land’s eco­nomic devel­op­ment, ed­u­ca­tion, health and hu­man ser­vices, crim­i­nal jus­tice, the en­vi­ron­ment and multi-cul­tur­al­ism/di­ver­sity. These ses­sions will be fol­lowed by a one­day clos­ing re­treat in Novem­ber and a grad­u­a­tion cel­e­bra­tion in De­cem­ber. More than 100 ex­perts rep­re­sent­ing busi­ness, govern­ment, ed­u­ca­tion and the non­profit community will serve as pan­elists and guest speak­ers.

“The se­lec­tion process for the Class of 2017 was very com­pet­i­tive this year, as we had an ex­tra­or­di­nary pool of di­verse and ex­pe­ri­enced ap­pli­cants to choose from,” said Renée M. Win­sky, 2005, pres­i­dent and Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer, Lead­er­ship Mary­land. “The 52 se­lected par­tic­i­pants rep­re­sent a di­verse and broad spec­trum of highly qual­i­fied ex­ec­u­tives from across the state, and we are con­fi­dent that their Lead­er­ship Mary­land ex­pe­ri­ence will help them to play an even greater role in our uni­fied ef­fort to shape the fu­ture of our state.”

In ad­di­tion to her role at Ch­e­sa­peake Col­lege, Hughes is the pres­i­dent of the Tide­wa­ter Ro­tary Club; a board mem­ber of Cam­bridge Main Street and the Dorch­ester Cham­ber of Com­merce; and a com­mit­tee mem­ber with Eastern Shore Net­work for Change, Tal­bot Hospice and Tal­bot Se­nior Cen­ter at Brook­letts Place. Hughes also serves on the Mar yland Health Care Com­mis­sion Work Group on Ru­ral Health Care De­liv­ery.

Lead­er­ship Mary­land is open to se­nior-level ex­ec­u­tives with sig­nif­i­cant achieve­ments in ei­ther their ca­reers and/or their com­mu­ni­ties. Ideal Lead­er­ship Mary­land mem­bers have a de­sire to learn more about Mary­land’s most crit­i­cal is­sues and a per­sonal com­mit­ment to be a force for pos­i­tive change in their or­ga­ni­za­tions, their com­mu­ni­ties, and their state.
