Young Leaders Council – Massey’s Inaugural Class of ’17

Jun 9, 2017 | Alumni Spotlight

Earlier this year, a decision was made by the Young Leaders Council (YLC) to partner with The Jack C. Massey Graduate School of Business in creating a first-of-its-kind ‘school-specific’ YLC cohort class.  YLC works with young professionals to help prepare them for service within the nonprofit community by getting them ready to serve on a nonprofit board.  Each YLC class is an 11-week experience, includes an internship experience with a nonprofit board, and consists of one evening per week where participants learn from various local leaders to acquire critical board management skills.  On March 17, the first Massey cohort began meeting on Belmont’s campus as official members of this inaugural Class of ’17.  See below for a list of the participants:

  • Kurt Alexander (Touchstone Medical Imaging)
  • Mark DeYoung (ALFA Insurance Company)
  • Cameron Eades (W Squared, Inc.)
  • William Gilmore (Anderson Piping Co.)
  • Tyler Graham (Bradford Real Estate)
  • Aaron Harris (BubbleUp)
  • Courtney Hensley (Aon Risk Solutions)
  • Colton Langianese (Sarah Cannon Research Institute)
  • Lindsay Mathews (BDO USA, LLP)
  • Aaron Montlary (HCA Healthcare)
  • Londa Morgan (c3/consulting)
  • Tim Morrison (Ernst and Young LLP)
  • Jennifer Pagliara (CapWealth Advisors, LLC)
  • Jennifer Patterson (c3/consulting)
  • Josh Roberts (BlueCross BlueShield of TN), and
  • James Sherer (Williamson College).

Each YLC graduate will now be focused on working with a local nonprofit as future board members and will be using the skills they obtained at Belmont and through YLC to improve their communities in future years. If any graduate students would like to become involved with Young Leaders Council, and get thechance to help nonprofits around Nashville, please visit YLC’s website here.  The next planned YLC Massey experience is planned for Spring 2018.  Stay tuned for additional information if you are interested in being a part of the next class.
