The Winds of Leadership will find projects in Harford County and assemble the leaders necessary to accomplish them, thus leaving behind us an improved county and a legacy of leadership.
The Winds of Leadership is committed to exploring and applying the force of united leadership to achieve the tasks that leave a legacy. As a sail catches the force of the wind for speed and direction, so the Winds of Leadership will catch the force of a leader to go and do all good tasks in Harford County.
We are an open group of leaders. Currently, all of the leaders participating are Harford Leadership Academy graduates. There are no dues and there are no membership requirements. Winds of Leadership (WINDS) is the 501 (c ) (3) philanthropic arm of HLA.
The first designated task was to replace the main sail on the Skipjack Martha Lewis. This was accomplished.
The second task is to erect a monument to leadership, a symbol, on Harford Community College property. It will be a modern rendition of a sail. Why? Why build a visual symbol for leadership? Some may say, “It’s just a monument.” We believe it is more.
Visual symbols are important in this modern world, where there is so much competition for our attention. Our hope and desire is that this symbol will be a graphic picture for the WINDS philosophy. We want it to: Affect and influence people – from known leaders to students Serve as a rallying cry for leaders to unite Remind us of the power of leadership Bind us together Reinforce our philosophy Point people beyond themselves
The monument is also a fitting tribute to the county and the college for the formation of the Leadership Academy.
What can you do? In one word, UNITE. Unite to finish the monument, to find the next project and to leave a legacy of leadership visible by all we accomplish.
Participate in the process.
HLA Graduate Campaign
Our next project that we have chosen is to support SARC and to challenge all graduates to get involved in a project that will help provide transitional housing for the victims of domestic violence in our community while continuing to raise funds for the monument.
