    Leadership Columbus has really helped me grow both personally and professionally more than I ever could have imagined. I learned an incredible amount about the city and the different roles so many people play in the mosaic of our society. I leave this program having learned an incredible amount and having made such wonderful friends and memories for what will be years to come.
