"As a proud graduate of Leadership Rowlett “Class 26” (the BEST class), I have experienced firsthand the community impact, professional influence, and personal inspiration gained from this unique opportunity. Leadership Rowlett provides a look into the inner workings of our great city and encourages life-long friendships with fellow class members. Do not think about it, just do it, and know your life will be richer after this experience.
"As a previous administrator at Rowlett High School, the packed gym at pep rallies gave me a glimpse into the small town feel of this amazing city rich with tradition. Leadership Rowlett allowed me an opportunity to learn even more about the infrastructure, emergency response, transportation, and government, all while developing lasting relationships with some amazing leaders in cohort 25. I have since moved to a district role, but will forever be impacted by the unforgettable experiences and incredible folks I now call friends."
