Connecting leaders to strengthen our community

Congratulations LGS Class 40! 


LGS Class 40

In its 40 years of service to the community, Leadership Grand Strand has tackled real community needs as part of each class’s graduation requirements. Each member is required to do 75 total project hours that will be split between Habitat for Humanity, Horry County Schools, New Directions, the Ann DeBock Leadership Award nomination project, personal hours and an initiative with the City of Myrtle Beach to support downtown redevelopment projects. LGS alumni will be invited to participate in the latter project.
