HCC's LaCalle accepted in leadership program
James F. LaCalle, interim president of Harford Community College, was recently accepted to the Leadership Maryland program, a statewide leadership development organization. Its purpose is to cultivate participants' state and regional knowledge so they can contribute effectively in meeting challenges facing the state, and to build relationships among a network of leaders who want a better understanding of issues facing Maryland.
In 1991, LaCalle founded HCC's Harford Leadership Academy, which promotes the development of a committed, involved and diverse network of leaders for the county. The academy has graduated more than 430 local leaders from business and industry, education, government and civic organizations.
The Leadership Maryland program, which begins next month and concludes in December, covers topics such as education, health and human services, the criminal justice system, the environment and multiculturalism.
"I'd like to get a broader perspective on statewide issues and expand my network of professional colleagues," LaCalle said. "Through my work at the college and volunteer involvement, I'm exposed to local community issues, but it would be interesting and beneficial to see beyond the county on issues such as economic development, education, work force training, diversity, social problems, and the like."
