Kim Hamm ’15 | October 1, 2019

It is my honor and pleasure to serve as President of the Leadership Pasco Board of Directors during its 30th anniversary year - Class of 2020! For three decades, this highly regarded program has provided hundreds of Pasco County’s current and future leaders with a valuable forum to learn, interact, collaborate and exchange ideas that foster nurtured development and stewardship of our community. As leaders, we must work together to creatively shape our County’s future direction, while continuing to preserve the valuable traditions that make Pasco County THE BEST place to live, work and play!

It’s your turn now Class of 2020! Thanks to the generous support of our many alumni, business partners, local leaders and government officials, we have a very exciting year planned for you! As mentioned during Orientation, whether you are a lifelong resident or a new arrival, we promise that you will learn many things about Pasco County you never knew. We also encourage you to take advantage of all of the opportunities that being part of the Leadership Pasco program provides. We all look forward to seeing what this year’s amazing group of leaders can accomplish together!

Without our hard-working volunteer Board Members, the Leadership Pasco program would not be possible. I would like to thank our new Board Officers for their service for the 2020 class year:
