Masters Class Reflection

Session 2

Carson Sweeney, Lewistown, Class of 2015 and Masters 2022

Leadership Montana is making the difference across Montana that they set out to accomplish years ago. On multiple occasions, I have been in the middle of an intriguing conversation with someone I’ve only just met, and I just have to ask, “Have you participated in Leadership Montana?” Each time their proud response has been “Yes, Class of 20XX, You?” What a neat connection we have with so many alumni throughout our diverse state. I am honored to be associated with each of you, humbled in fact.

The gift of participating in the Leadership Montana experience is in fact that, a gift. I certainly owe a debt to those who pushed me to expand myself throughout our many LM sessions. I am grateful to be a student in the 2021 Masters Class. What an excellent way to build upon the foundation of gracious space. I would encourage each of you to give yourself the gift of participating in the Masters program. Your tank will be spilling over after surrounding yourself once again with outstanding Montana leaders.

Our Masters Class gets to meet in Helena on April 27-29. I am longing to see each of our classmates and hear how they have been. Our last session was held virtually. We were all bummed to miss out on an excellent opportunity to visit the eastern portion of our beautiful state. Jen and the team are doing a fabulous job of leading each of us to the higher bar we are all striving for. I can only hope to keep pace with them as they plow the path ahead to a better Montana.

From beautiful Central Montana, I wish all of you the best.
