This will be the third year that the scholarship is being offered, according to Matt Resch, who heads the Lansing-based public relations and public affairs firm.

“Leadership Lansing is dedicated to building skills and establishing connections for new talent in our community,” Resch said. “Our goal with the The Resch Strategies Leadership Lansing Scholarship is to assist non-profit leadership, so organizations like the Lansing Art Gallery can further impact the Greater Lansing area.”

Leadership Lansing participants have the opportunity to participate in seven workshops and an overnight retreat where they are exposed to key local institutions, industry sectors and business leaders. Facilitated by coaches and local area leaders, monthly topics range from advocacy, education and manufacturing to entrepreneurism and business leadership.

The Lansing Art Gallery is the first permanent art gallery in Lansing and is the oldest nonprofit gallery. Their mission is to provide public awareness, education and enjoyment of the visual arts by promoting the works of Michigan artists.

“We are so appreciative of this opportunity to participate in the Leadership Lansing program,” said Barb Whitney, Executive Director of the Lansing Art Gallery and Education Center. “It will be great to connect with and learn from fellow Lansing professionals to fulfill our mission and grow our impact.”

The Resch Strategies Leadership Lansing Scholarship was established in 2015 to cover the full cost of tuition for an area non-profit leader to participate in the program. Past recipients were leaders from the Origami Brian Injury and Rehabilitation Center, the Davies Project for Mid-Michigan Children and the First Tee of Mid-Michigan.
