Alumni Spotlight: Jerry Caligiuri

(LSC '09, LLA '10)

How did the up-close examination and exposure to community issues through Leadership L.A. and Leadership Southern California directly impact your work?

“I had an amazing experience with the Leadership L.A. and Leadership Southern California programs. They gave me tremendous insight into our region, and assisted me in handling public sector issues and problem solving when I worked for City Council Offices in Long Beach. One of the most significant benefits of my experience with the two programs were the friendships I established. The programs really are a testament to leadership development and what is best in Southern California.”
