Verbatim: No donation from fighter wing, Leadership Fort Wayne says

Leadership Fort Wayne issued this statement today:

Fort Wayne, Ind. - Leadership Fort Wayne, Inc. (LFW) Is issuing this clarifying statement with regard to Leadership Fort Wayne's receipt of a $3,500 donation to its program from the Air National Guard 122nd Fighter Wing.

Leadership Fort Wayne did not receive a donation from the Air National Guard 122nd Fighter Wing. We are proud to say that for the first time in LFW's 32 year history we had two individuals from the 122nd Fighter Wing participate in the 2014 signature adult Leadership Fort Wayne program. The Leadership Fort Wayne Board of Directors approved a 50 percent tuition remission as a means of honoring the service of the men and women who serve our country and community through the Air National Guard 122nd Fighter Wing. That cost totaled $2,000 for the two individuals who participated in the ten month leadership development program.

For years local businesses have supported the personal leadership development of individuals with expectation and realization that these individuals are more engaged, capable and productive citizens and employees.

Further we recognize the social and economic impact of the jobs that the Air National Guard 122nd Fighter Wing brings to the community and region. The individuals who work and serve at the 122nd are our friends, neighbors and community leaders who serve in many leadership capacities and we look forward to having the 122nd represented in the 2015 LFW Class.
