Stanley K. Lacy Executive Leadership Series® announces members of Class XLVII

The Stanley K. Lacy Executive Leadership Series (SKL) is thrilled to announce its 47th class. Each class year, 25 individuals are selected to participate in this highly competitive program, which seeks to expand the ranks of community leaders by teaching and motivating members to address the needs of Central Indiana.

Class members are chosen because of their significant community involvement and professional achievement, their demonstrated interest in community issues, a record of participation and achievement in voluntary community activities, and their willingness to expand their leadership role in the community.

Juan Gonzalez has been named the Moderator for SKL Class XLVII. He serves KeyBank’s Market President for Central Indiana and is a graduate of the program himself, having participated in SKL Class XXXII. As Moderator he will lead the class in exploring a range of issues facing Central Indiana and the role leaders can play in strengthening the community.

“One of the great successes of our community is the work that is done between our private and public sectors. SKL is a unique program that provides its participants the opportunity to learn about this partnership, to hear from experts, and to make sure we think about our future. As a past participant of this program, I know the positive impact that SKL had on me, personally and professionally. It gave me the additional inspiration to get more involved and to be part of the solutions for our community. It is a great honor to be selected to be the Moderator of this class, to be the first Latino Moderator and to be able to share with them my experiences in our community. I am looking forward to being part of this incredible journey,” said Gonzalez.

SKL was created by the Lacy family in 1976. The Lacys continue to be involved and provide funding for the program. Jill Lacy, President of the Lacy Foundation, shared, “Choosing the SKL moderator is one of my favorite things I get the honor of doing every year. Juan will be an excellent addition to the long list of amazing Moderators SKL has had. Juan is passionate about Indianapolis and has vast knowledge and experience in helping to create the culture of our city, both by looking at its history and by the changing landscape that is our future. I know Juan will challenge, enlighten and broaden the horizons of the SKL Class XLVII members.”

SKL Class XLVII will meet monthly from September through June.
