30 for 30!

McKINNEY (July 20, 2016) —  Leadership McKinney is proud to announce the Class of 2018 to launch the program’s 30th anniversary year. Thirty community members begin their adventure on Aug. 10 at the annual New Class Orientation & Alumni Reception, hosted and sponsored by The Body Shop Collision Repair.

These new class members will eventually join the elite group of alumni, now over 580 strong, with a renewed sense of community responsibility. During the upcoming months, they will immerse themselves in McKinney as they have never done before and experience a challenging educational experience designed to equip them for a future that is constantly changing.

The 30th Anniversary class is presented by Utter Wealth Management Group of Wells Fargo Advisors.  As the program presenting sponsor, Gail Utter and Nate Pike have made the decision to continue to invest in our community through their support of the Leadership McKinney program.


Thank You Utter Wealth Management Group of Wells Fargo Advisors and CONGRATULATIONS to the Leadership McKinney Class of 2018. Let the Adventure Begin!
