CURRENT COHORT UPDATE:

Center for Leadership Development would like to take a moment to acknowledge and honor our most recent cohort of CLD Student Ambassadors. CLD Student Ambassadors are enthusiastic, knowledgeable and motivated young CLD Alumni who actively promote the organization’s mission, assist with recruitment, staff events and represent CLD at various functions in their schools and communities.

As the faces of CLD, Student Ambassadors serve as an essential component to CLD’s marketing and recruitment efforts. Given the current conditions, we have decided to conclude the Student Ambassador Initiative early, and are grateful to the students who wholeheartedly supported us during their tenure. We look forward to future opportunities for 11th grade Student Ambassadors who may return to serve during their senior year.

Most importantly, we wish our current seniors all the best in their endeavors. We are sad to say goodbye so soon, but empowered by their bright futures ahead.
