“For every summer since 2008, local interns and new hires have gathered for the eight-week [Summer Leadership] program, which exposes them to the best of what Lakeland has to offer — its restaurants and entertainment, notable businesses, volunteer opportunities, cultural attractions, and of course, networking with other young professionals.” -Kyle Kennedy

One of those new hires who was able to participate in the Summer Leadership Program is our very own Samantha Sokolski.

Having been through the Summer Leadership Program, she is quick to share how this program has positively impacted and influenced many areas of her life – work and personal life included. One of the opportunities she was given to speak out about her experience was through our local newspaper, The Ledger. Check out the articles below!
