47 leaders selected to represent Leadership Greater Little Rock Class XXXVIII

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Sept. 28+, 2022) -- The 38th class of Leadership Greater Little Rock (LGLR) has been selected and all 47 members have one thing in common: they are leaders within their respective communities and industries and are interested in expanding that involvement across the region.

Established in 1985, (LGLR) is a nine-month community leadership program created by the Little Rock Regional Chamber. It is designed to develop effective leaders by enhancing their civic, social, and professional awareness to positively impact our community.

“I am excited for this group of leaders in our community to take a deep dive into the greater Little Rock area and become more fully engaged and impactful members of our region,” said Kellen Davis, Executive Director of Leadership Greater Little Rock. “As this is my first class as Executive Director, I will in a way be going through the program with them. The LGLR program has a storied history of producing incredible leaders, and I have no doubt that Class XXXVIII will carry the mantle.”

This year’s class is chaired by Drew Harrison, Vice President of Operations at Harrison Energy Partners and co-chaired by Suzanne Peyton, Director of Properties, Planning & Development at the Clinton Airport. Both are graduates of LGLR. 

“The Leadership Greater Little Rock program is a vital part of the Central Arkansas community, and Suzanne and I are excited to play a role in this year’s class,” said Harrison. “We have an outstanding group of future civic leaders. I already know Central Arkansas will benefit from the great accomplishments this class will achieve for many years to come.”

Participants will meet one day every month at a different central Arkansas location to explore topics through expert speakers, panelists, tours, and group presentations.
