On Monday, April 26, the Amherst H. Wilder Foundation’s Neighborhood Leadership Program (NLP) will graduate 32 students from its 2009-10 program. The event, to be held at Wilder Center, 451 Lexington Parkway North, in Saint Paul, will feature a reception at 5:30 pm with the program beginning at 6:30 pm. Saint Paul Chief of Police John Harrington will offer the keynote address, and Alicia Huckleby, Saint Paul Public Housing Agency (PHA), will also offer remarks.
“In a world that is networked and where our relationships define our roles, we must have all hands pushing and pulling together for progress to be made,” said Harrington. “The NLP brings residents from various neighborhoods together where skills and relationships develop into positive social change."
