Alliance Mayor Alan Andreani said “During my formal academic training in leadership, I learned of the many traits that experienced leaders possess. As I recall the long list of those traits, Dr. King exemplifies all of them: communicator, visionary, empathy, commitment, boldness, challenge the status quo, empowerment, lifelong learner, accountability, establish a team concept, and look for opportunities in all situations. What a role model for us in leadership positions and an excellent role model for our young people.” Thank you Mayor Andreani for your inspirational thoughts.
