Leadership W.Va. names alumni coordinator

CHARLESTON — Kate Reed has been hired as the first alumni coordinator of Leadership West Virginia (LWV). Reed is a native West Virginian and, most recently, has served as executive director for the Elkins-Randolph County Chamber of Commerce.

“Leadership West Virginia is so pleased to have attracted someone with Kate’s experience to coordinate the over 1,000 alumni of our 22-year-old leadership organization. She is a graduate of the program and will bring tremendous energy to our efforts,” said Pam Farris, LWV executive director.

Reed is a graduate of West Virginia Wesleyan College and has a master’s degree from George Washington University’s School of Political Management. Upon graduation, Reed worked in business development, consulting, fundraising, campaign work and event planning.

“I’m looking forward to the opportunity to work with leaders across the state. As a graduate of Leadership West Virginia, I understand the value of the program and what it can do to build careers and develop personal networks,” Reed said.

“My experience was invaluable and I’m honored I have the chance to continue my involvement with the program as the alumni coordinator.”

Leadership West Virginia (LWV) (www.leadershipwv.org) is now in its 22nd year as the premier statewide education and leadership development program in West Virginia. The eight-month program identifies emerging leaders from a variety of employers throughout West Virginia and enhances their knowledge, not only of the challenges facing the state, but also the state’s unique attributes and diversity. Leadership West Virginia works to develop and motivate a cross-section of leaders who will use their talents and abilities to inspire others, and to foster a new spirit of energy, enthusiasm and vitality throughout the state. LWV is affiliated with the West Virginia Chamber of Commerce.
