Leadership Northern Kentucky Class of 2013 included a familiar face for many C-Forward customers. Mike Grout, C-Forward Technical Manager, was one of 48 LNK graduates at the recent class graduation last Friday night. Being an LNK Graduate is a very prestigious honor. The list of previous LNK graduates is a “Who’s who” of leaders throughout the Northern Kentucky/Greater Cincinnati area (Click here to see the list). When asked about the value of the program, Mike Grout responded, “Leadership Northern Kentucky was a life changing experience that enlightened me about the tough issues that our region faces. The program helped me to grow both personally and professionally and I found some lifelong friends along the way. “

According to the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, LNK “uses the community as a classroom to develop leaders to effectively serve the region. The nine-month program is designed to help a diverse group of potential, emerging and existing community leaders acquire an understanding of the strengths and challenges of the Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati area and the skills necessary to motivate and engage others in collaborative efforts.”

“We are very proud of Mike and all he does, not only for C-Forward, but for the entire community.”, said Brent Cooper, C-Forward President. In addition to participating in Leadership Northern Kentucky, Mike also serves on the Northern Kentucky Workforce Investment Board, as well as C-Forward’s Management Team.

Please join everyone at C-Forward in congratulating Mike on his latest achievement!
