Description

Leadership Memphis will be hosting its 2018 Leadership Awards Luncheon, presented by Sedgwick and Regional One Health, on March 7th at the Hilton Ridgeway Hotel. Each year we honor three community leaders who exemplify the true meaning of collective impact through our Kate Gooch Leader of the Year, Distinguished Alumni of the Year and Community Champion of the Year awards.

This year’s award recipients are:

  • Kate Gooch Leader of the Year Award - Carolyn Hardy, President/CEO of Chism Hardy Investments, LLC and Henderson Worldwide Investments, LLC
  • Distinguished Alumnus of the Year Award - Reginald Porter Jr., Sr. Vice President, Enterprise Operations, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital/ALSAC
  • Community Champion Award -Christ Community Health Services

Leadership Memphis will also recognize eight SUCCESS High School students who exemplify outstanding leadership and community service attributes.

The Luncheon speaker will be Josh McManus. Josh is a problem-solver working in post-industrial cities with entrepreneurs, corporations and foundations to help people positively transform the places that they love. Josh’s experience spans 20 years as a serial social and business entrepreneur. An innovator in entrepreneurial ecosystems, creative economic development and combatting population loss, Josh is obsessed with place-based change. A autodidactic learner on subjects ranging from invention laboratories to neuroscience to game theory, Josh designs and implements projects that aim to disrupt how people in places think of themselves and their community and maximize the potential of all citizens who reside there.

Nationally, Josh is a Marshall Memorial Fellow and a Next American Vanguard. Locally, he has helped found multiple organizations and has served on a variety of institutional boards in his collection of adopted hometowns including Chattanooga, TN, Detroit, MI, and Bar Harbor, ME. His thoughts have been featured by Forbes, Fast Company, The Economist, Entrepreneur, GOOD, USA Today, The Huffington Post and Garden and Gun.
