The Leadership Lincoln Distinguished Alumni for 2017 is Dr. Marilyn Moore, a graduate of the Leadership Lincoln Executive Series second class. Moore served the Lincoln Public Schools as teacher and administrator for forty years and topped her career by serving as President of the Bryan College of Health Sciences. Moore will be recognized during the State of the City event scheduled for Friday, September 22.
“Dr. Moore exemplifies what we seek to accomplish through Leadership Lincoln,” noted Executive Director Mick Hale. “Throughout her professional life, she served the faculty, staff and students of Lincoln Public Schools. Not only that, but she was active in and served on the board of many organizations serving our community.”
Moore, a native Nebraskan, has been involved in more than a dozen organizations including The Lincoln Children’s Museum, The Food Bank of Lincoln, The Lied Center Advisory Board and she has served in a number of volunteer positions in her church.
The State of the City event is an annual joint effort of the City of Lincoln and Leadership Lincoln. It serves as a time for the citizens of Lincoln to gather and celebrate the past year and to look forward with anticipation to the coming year. Lincoln Mayor Chris Beutler will address the gathering, sharing some items from the past year that are worthy of celebration and looking ahead to what the future holds as Lincoln continues to grow and thrive. Leadership Lincoln will recognize Moore’s contribution to our community and introduce the more than 100 participants taking part in programs this year.
“I’ve been in this community since I came to college,” said Moore, “and I thought I knew Lincoln well. When I participated in the Leadership Lincoln Executive Series, I discovered I didn’t know the details and I didn’t know the inner workings of different organizations in the community. Leadership Lincoln helped me to get to know the different leaders within the community it helped me figure out my role within this community as a professional with Lincoln Public Schools.”
The Leadership Lincoln Executive Series, now in its 30th year, is designed to serve Senior executives from all aspects of the Lincoln community, both new to town and long-time residents. The mission is to help them gain a deeper understand of the issues facing Lincoln and at the same time make connections across all levels and types of organizations that make up our city. Participants explore leadership skills, group dynamics and community development issues and learn about the various organizations, educational institutions, governmental entities and businesses in Lincoln.
The public is invited to participate in the event which will be at The Graduate Hotel, 141 N. 9th in downtown Lincoln. Tickets for the breakfast which begins at 7:15 AM are available online at www.leadershiplincoln.org. A few seats will be set aside for those who don’t want the breakfast but would like to participate in the program beginning at 7:45.
