Champions For Learning’s president and CEO, Barbara Evans, has been selected to participate in Leadership Florida’s Cornerstone Class 41. Evans is one of three people selected to represent the Southwest Region. During her time in Leadership Florida, Evans will help achieve the organization’s mission to convene a statewide community of leaders by recharging their leadership skills and to educate and inspire them to work for a better Florida.

“It is an honor to be selected for Leadership Florida’s Cornerstone Class 41. This is a great opportunity to learn and connect with other likeminded leaders in our state,” said Evans. “I am eager to see the benefits this opportunity will have on Champions For Learning in continuing to serve as a catalyst for educational success by investing in Collier’s students and educators.”

Evans will participate in a nine-month educational program that consists of a series of two and three-day sessions held in cities throughout the state. This will include meaningful forums and opportunities created for inviting, inspiring and valuable experiences.

Upon graduating from the Leadership Florida Cornerstone Class Program, Evans will be among the over 3,300 graduates who serve as chief executive officers of some of Florida’s top corporations, mayors, and other elected officials, executives of pivotal non-profit groups, and leading academicians.
