Now more than ever, strong leadership is necessary to carry us through this global pandemic. Right here in Montana, we are grateful for these frontline leaders who are working night and day to keep us healthy and safe.
Many of these leaders are graduates of Leadership Montana. We could not be more proud or grateful for their work to directly address this health and economic crisis, and we’d like to recognize the wonderful work they are doing across the state. We have been recognizing LMT Alumni on our Facebook page, if you know of someone who should be featured please email Jen Davis.
Leadership Montana’s motto is Listen, Learn, Lead and we are grateful to have these three alumni setting the example of Listen and Learn together. As the Missoula community navigates how to address the COVID-19 pandemic, leaders from local government, school district and health related organizations are partnering together to determine the best strategy for their community.
Eric, Anne, and Hatton are all serving in communications roles for their respective organizations in Missoula. Managing this pandemic includes disseminating a lot information. These three alumni are on Joint Information Center conference calls every morning and collaborate daily on shared messaging and problem solving for their community. They shared that the trust built with each other through their Leadership Montana experience has made tough conversations and deep listening much more possible with each other.
If you are supporting a student who is learning from home, remember these helpful guiding principles from Missoula County Public Schools:
Health before Homework
Family before Frustration
Learning before Letter Grades
Thank you Anne, Eric and Hatton. We are grateful for you!
