Leadership Prince William Begins Recruiting for Class of 2021; This Year with More Scholarships than Ever

 

Manassas, VA-  Leadership Prince William (LPW) is pleased to announce that, for the second year in a row, they have received a grant from Potomac Health Foundation which enables them to offer up to five full or ten partial scholarships for their Signature Program Class of 2021. Those eligible for these scholarships will be people of color who live or work in one of the thirteen zipcodes serviced by Potomac Health Foundation. Scholarship recipients must also apply for and be accepted to Leadership Prince William’s Signature Program.

Peace Home Lending is also sponsoring two (2) $1,000 scholarships for young professionals who have been accepted to the Signature Program.

From their first class in 2008 to today, the strength of Leadership Prince William’s adult program has been rooted in participation representing all aspects of the greater Prince William community–various professions, industries, demographics, neighborhoods, experiences and skills.  Their alumni run small businesses, work in the technology sector, the arts, education, health care, government, human services, public safety and more. In order to be eligible to participate in the Class of 2021, candidates for the Leadership Prince William Signature Program must have lived or worked in Prince William County, Manassas or Manassas Park for at least one year by September 1, 2020.

Says Leadership Prince William Executive Director Andrea Money, “Through these new scholarships we are enabled to more actively pursue program participants and graduates who espouse diverse perspectives; crucial to ensuring that the leadership in the local business, government and not-for-profit communities accurately reflects and celebrates the racial and ethnic diversity of the people in the greater Prince William community. We have been a majority minority community since 2010.”

Applicants for the Potomac Health Foundation-funded scholarships must additionally meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • You are a person of color (May include the following: mixed race, African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian American, Pacific Islander, Latin American, etc.);
  • You live or work in the Potomac Health Foundation service area (represented by the following zip codes: 22125, 22079, 22191, 22026, 22135, 22554, 22556, 22134, 22172, 22025, 22193, 22192, 20112)

 

The Leadership Prince William Signature Program exposes emerging and established community leaders to the many facets of Prince William County and Greater Manassas, from History and Government to Health and Human Services. It can be a life-changing experience for many; allowing participants to look behind the scenes at how their community functions. At the same time, class members are discovering their own strengths and how their leadership may be needed in their workplace and beyond.

 

Selection for these scholarships is contingent upon selection as a member of the Leadership Prince William Class of 2021. Additional scholarship opportunities may be available for those who do not meet these criteria.

 

Applications for both the Leadership Prince William Signature Program and the Scholarship for Leaders of Color became available on January 26, 2020 and will close June 26, 2020. Applications are available online at leadershipprincewilliam.org. For more information on the program and scholarships, call Leadership Prince William at 571-765-7568.

Andrea (Short) Money, LPW Class of 2015

Executive Director at Leadership Prince William


Tell us a little about what you do:

Andrea (Short) Money, Executive Director, Leadership Prince William

I am the Executive Director of Leadership Prince William. That means I manage a staff of 1 (plus myself) along with a legion of volunteers. I answer to a Board of 26 Regents/Directors + nearly 400 alumni. I am in charge of the planning and implementation of all of our events and two programs (adult and youth). Luckily I have some really great people helping to make it all happen. And yes, this is what I do full time. 🙂

 

What’s new since you graduated from LPW? 

Since graduating from LPW I have been through quite a bit in the way of life changes. I went through the Signature Program at just the right time—it was a real turning point for me. {We can meet for coffee if you want to hear all about it.} But the last 2 years have been very good to me. I left my position at the Prince William Chamber, started this job with LPW, bought my grandparents’ house, got engaged, got married and had my first child in June!

.

What is your favorite LPW memory?

There are a lot of great memories to choose from, but I think Education Day may have been my favorite. Specifically, going to the Hylton Planetarium and discovering that they are open to the public. I’ve been back several times for various shows. Laser Led Zeppelin is awesome. You should go!

 

How has LPW helped you get to where you are today? 

LPW taught me the value of what I bring to the table because of my Emergenetics profile, knowledge, relationships and experience. What a confidence boost this program was for me! Recently I was having a conversation with someone I had just met and she stopped me to make sure she had heard me correctly: That I don’t have a college education and yet I still have this great job and I’m making a decent living. She was blown away. I know I’m not the only one who has ended up right where I belong because of my LPW experience. It feels great to be a part of something that helps people discover their own potential…even when they’re already doing big things.

 

What does leadership mean to you?

To me leadership is service. I won’t ask someone to do something that I wouldn’t do myself. In fact, if I’m asking you to take on a task, it’s probably while I’m right in the middle of doing it myself. If someone is going to follow me, I want them to know for certain that I’m more interested in seeing them succeed than in taking credit for myself.

 

Any final thoughts?

Thanks to Kathy Ellington and Kathy Bentz for making this organization so much fun to be a part of. If I’m able to accomplish anything it’s just because I’m standing on the shoulders of two brilliant, sparkly and generous ladies.

Aaron Tolson, LPW Class of 2018

Development Director at ACTS


Tell us a little about what you do:

Development Director-responsible for marketing, social media, website development, fundraising, grants, program support, business partnerships, and program director for Prince William Food Rescue.

 

What’s new since you graduated from LPW? 

Since graduating, I started working at ACTS, launched the Prince William Food Rescue program, and am re-launching the Greater Prince William Food Council (started by LPW alumni Pam Ryan), and moved back to Manassas from Warrenton.

.

What is your favorite LPW memory?

Lots of good memories, but I really enjoyed being up on the mountain – so many great moments unique to our class (#cloggers)!

 

How has LPW helped you get to where you are today? 

Halfway through the class I found myself applying for new jobs, but my focus shifted following the Health and Human Services day.  The groundwork for bringing the Food Rescue program here and joining the team at ACTS was a direct result of that one class and its impact on me personally.

 

What does leadership mean to you?

Leadership is multifaceted – sometimes it looks like taking risks while others follow, and at other times it looks like simply supporting and empowering others to be the best version of themselves.

 

Any final thoughts?

So many great relationships exist through LPW – from my class to other classes.  LPW Alumni are truly making a tremendous impact in our community, and it is awesome!

Tell us a little about what you do:

I write and take photographs for a bi-weekly column for InsideNoVA titled “Around Prince William.”  My bi-weekly column focuses on political, social, human interest and other subjects which occur in Prince William County.  Member of the Virginia Press Association, the Outdoor Writers Association of America, and the Virginia Outdoor Writer’s Association.

 

What’s new since you graduated from LPW? 

Leadership Prince William gave me a greater appreciation of the many dimensions of Prince William County.  This knowledge armed me well to explore issues I write about in greater depth.  It has also made me more active as a political and social activist.

.

What is your favorite LPW memory?

Breaking the rules for all of the exercises.  I was surprised to be elected to the Class Representative to the Board of Regents since I didn’t actually run for the position.  Fellow classmate and team member John Frisch nominated me.

 

What does leadership mean to you?

Real leadership is decided by others.  You are only a leader if there are people following you voluntarily, or if you are influencing processes and decisions you care about.

Middle School Students Raise Thousands of Dollars for Local Charities

Manassas, VA— On Friday, July 26 Leadership Prince William held a Commencement Ceremony for the 28 middle school students and 8 counselors (high school students) graduating from their Summer Youth Academy.

During the program, the students learned which of their two teams won the competition and fundraiser known as  Leadership Lemonade. The Red Team pulled in the most money, raising $1,427.85 for Bright Care Center (https://brightcarecenter.org/). The Blue Team came in second having raised $1,064.25 in support of CASA Child Intervention Services (http://casacis.org/).

Representatives from both organizations were presented with checks during the graduation ceremony.

The Red Team presented a check to several of the young women served by Bright Care Center during the Summer Youth Academy commencement ceremony on July 26 at Youth for Tomorrow. Leadership Prince William Board Chair Jacqueline Krick is front left in orange and white.

 

 

 

 

 

Members of the Blue Team are shown serving lemonade, slushies and treats to raise money for CASA-CIS on July 24. The teams also took online donations from those who couldn’t make it out on event day.

More about this program:

Leadership Lemonade is an entrepreneurial competition that encourages philanthropy and community awareness among the students. The exercise culminated on Wednesday, July 24 with two competing lemonade stands on the grounds of Youth for Tomorrow—home base for the two-week youth academy.  As part of their experience, the students had the opportunity to meet with representatives from seven Prince William/Greater Manassas area not-for-profit organizations. Using the information gathered during their meetings, the students were divided into two teams and asked to choose which organizations they would be raising money for. They chose the Bright Care Center and CASA.

Throughout the Leadership Prince William Summer Youth Academy participants had opportunities to enhance their team building, communication and leadership skills, beginning with a personalized Emergenetics behavioral assessment (similar to a DISC profile) and culminating in the planning and execution of Leadership Lemonade.
