Associate Wendi Werren Graduates from Leadership Rockford

WilliamsMcCarthy LLP Associate Wendi Werren is a recent graduate of the Rockford Chamber of Commerce Leadership Rockford program. She spent eight months alongside a diverse group of local leaders gaining an in-depth understanding of the Rockford community through exclusive introductions to the people that make up the very core of the region, participating in behind-the-scene tours of some of the region’s most successful companies and taking part in lively discussions and interactions with community business and government leaders.

As part of the program, participants teamed up to support various non-profit organizations throughout the region. Wendi and her team selected the Golden Apple Foundation.

Wendi’s team included Ramona Hoel with the Rock River Valley Blood Center, Stephen Nelson with Larson & Darby Group, Justin Rosecke with Mr. Goodwater and Shari Snyder with Midland States Bank. The team selected to support the Golden Apple Foundation, which celebrates and supports excellence in education by recognizing outstanding teachers and principals. Each member of the team volunteered their time to participate in the selection process of the Golden Apple Foundation finalists for 2019 by engaging in one or more of the following: reading and scoring teacher candidate portfolios, observing candidates in the classroom, and/or participating as a panelist for teacher interviews.

On May 2, Wendi joined the 65th graduating class during the annual Celebration of Leadership Breakfast at the Tabala Event Center in Rockford.
