  • “Providing Leadership in our Community” was the topic presented by Christina Sharp, a recent graduate of the Montgomery County Leadership Academy, at Monday’s Lunch with the League.   What is a leader?  Leadership comes in all shapes and sizes and in different formats and sometimes the best way to understand leadership is to first understand what it means.

  • March is National Women’s History Month.  International Women’s Day was first observed in 1909, but it wasn’t until 1981 that Congress established National Women’s history week to be commemorated the second week of March.  In 1987, Congress expanded the week to a month. Every year since, Congress has passed a resolution for Women’s History Month, and the President has issued a proclamation.
