The Leadership Center staff and the Nebraska Vocational Agricultural Foundation Board of Directors

2017 was a big year for The Leadership Center. Collectively between events and donations, we raised nearly $143,000.00 towards replacing the roof on Ted Ward Lodge that was damaged in a storm,  updating computers and electronics throughout the facility as well as security and other amenities. Thank you to all those who donated towards the work we do at The Leadership Center and the guests we serve. Thank you.
