Our success is rooted in the innovative and loyal leaders who provide valuable support and insight to our community. To recognize these leaders who go above and beyond, the Francis Hemm Leadership Society was born.
After completion of their term, alumni council members are welcomed into the Francis Hemm Leadership Society. The society also includes former alumni members the Board of Trustees and the Alumni Association’s board of directors.
