"I attended Leadership Pearland early on in my career with the City of Pearland and it helped me gain a much broader understanding of all the moving pieces and valuable people it takes to make a community so great. From learning about different businesses, nonprofits and City/County/State government, to meeting other like minded community members....the experience was invaluable to my learning and growing in my professional role as well as personal relationships." Michelle Graham, Class of 2004
