The Eversource Energy Foundation recently announced a Community Impact Grant to the non-profit group, Leadership Lakes Region. The grant will be used to underwrite the costs of the group’s annual Economic Issues Day when the next class of Leadership Lakes convenes later this year. “Eversource has funded our Economic Issues Day in the past with guest speakers, materials and generous sponsorships but this grant will enable us to provide additional and expanded leadership opportunities for the new class which starts in October,” said Program Coordinator, Jennifer McLean. “We are indebted to the Eversource Foundation for this generous grant in support of our program,” McLean added.
Leadership Lakes Region was alerted to the Foundation’s Grant program by Class of 2020 member Catalina Celentano, an Eversource community relations specialist for the company’s Northern Region. “Leadership Lakes Region is a great organization and we’re happy to be able to partner with them in support of Economic Issues Day for the upcoming class,” said Ms. Celentano. “Several company leaders have participated and continue to participate in the program and we have all benefitted from the relationships built there,” added Ms. Celentano.
In June, Ms. Celentano joined the Alumni ranks now totaling 406 area professionals who have graduated from the Leadership Lakes Region Program since its inception in 1997.
