Leadership South Shore, an initiative founded by South Shore Bank CEO Jim Dunphy in partnership with the South Shore Chamber of Commerce, celebrated its second class of graduates at The Company Theatre in Norwell. Leadership South Shore was launched by Dunphy as a way for business and civic leaders to engage with all aspects of South Shore communities to inspire better leadership that helps improve the entire region.
The event celebrated the achievements of the 2018 graduating class, comprised of 17 business and civic leaders. Throughout the past few months, this group explored different sites around the South Shore, delving into community issues surrounding health & human services, education, the local justice system, regional economic development, and the arts.
Among the members of the class of 2018 is Nicole Hales of Plymouth. She is a Senior Account Manager at PR First.
Only in its second year, the success of the Leadership South Shore program is surpassing expectations. The number of applications for the 2018-19 class exceeded the number of spots available. As a result, 23 new participants were introduced at the ceremony. Members of the inaugural Leadership South Shore class were also on hand, and the program was emceed by three program alumni: Jeff Forsythe (Jack Conway Company), Lucille Cassis (BAMSI), and Jess Wilcox (South Shore Conservatory).
