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 sculpture 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 sculpture.” 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:
The sculpture is also a fitting tribute to the county and the college for the formation of the Leadership Academy. We are proud to say that this project is in the final stages and we hope to place this sculpture in Summer of 2017.
We recently raised support for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Harford County with Game on: Who's Smarter Than a Fifth Grader? This was a very successful event, and we thank everyone that helped, participated, and came out to support this effort!
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.
There will be a mixer and fundraiser at the Green Turtle in Harford Mall on November 29. This will benefit JAMSQUAD, and help them to provide children's bike helmets.
Watch for more information to come about an "Amazing Race" event planned for 2017!
