NLC-Louisiana Announces 2016 Fellows

Today the Louisiana Chapter of New Leaders Council announced its 2016 Fellows including 22 young professionals from communities across the state. The New Leaders Council Institute is the premier leadership development program for young professionals and is Louisiana’s only progressive training organization.

“We’re proud of the high caliber broad diversity of this year’s class,” said Matt Bailey, chapter co-founder and advisory board member. “The Fellows’ impressive skills and experiences coupled with their demonstrated commitment to their communities indicate a readiness to take their leadership to the next level. Collectively, the Fellows in this and our previous six classes will provide committed and progressive leadership for Louisiana for decades to come.”

Fellows from New Orleans include Evan Bergeron, Michelle Craig, Vanessa Douyon, Dave Hand, Mike Hill, and Victor Jones. Also representing the Nola region are Kate Monson, Dale O’Neill, Anna Nguyen, Sean Perkins, Blake Stanfill, and Ryan Stivers. William Snowden, Courtney Stuckwisch, Marlene Theberge, Julie Thibodaux, Kiri Walton, and Reaghan Wainwright round out the New Orleans contingent. The class also includes Daniel Williams of Alexandria, Terrence Lockett of Baton Rouge, and Kate Pedrotty and Kyle Stadtlander of Shreveport.

The Institute is a ten-day political entrepreneurship training program that begins in January and meets monthly through June, covering diverse topics from communications and fundraising to campaign management. The first session will be held in Shreveport while other sessions will take place in Baton Rouge and New Orleans. The selective program admits only 16-22 Fellows each year.

This year, NLC Institutes will be held in 39 chapters across the country and will train approximately 800 Fellows. Each chapter sets an exceptionally high bar on the quality and talent level of the Fellows recruited. The class of 2016 will join over 3,000 alumni and will emerge prepared to lead and make a positive impact in their respective communities and across the state.
