Leadership High Point Class of 2020, what a journey to get here - your graduation day!
February 12, 2020 – Wow, seems like forever ago – you began day one and broke the mold as one of the most engaged groups of individuals Leadership High Point had ever seen.
March 11th – Furniture and Manufacturing Day, you had the opportunity to tour and learn about some of the legacy industries that call High Point home.
Then, our world stopped as we entered the pandemic caused by Covid-19. Yet, through a cloud of uncertainty and doubt surrounding your Leadership experience, you faithfully navigated your way through approximately 8 months of Zoom calls.
In the face of doubt and uncertainty, you all did what true leaders do. You stayed positive and in the disappointment of not being able to experience the norm of your leadership alumni - You did not allow uncertainty to lead you during this pandemic. You led your way through these uncertain times.
Leadership 2020, in the year of uncertainty and fear, you chose Faith - When it was easy to ask for a redo, you chose to refocus.
You can now say you are graduates of Leadership High Point and did so during one of the most challenging times in this country’s history. And no, there will not be an asterisk by your name on your plaque. Only accolades of your accomplishment.
Yes, it took about 12 months to complete, but you gained 12 months of newly formed friendships and a fraternity of new leaders!
As Chairman of Leadership High Point, it gives me great honor to say Leadership 2020, you are truly the Best Class Ever!
