Photo Caption: At the inaugural Bergen County Mini-LEADS program held at Berkeley College in Paramus on November 4, 2016, participants received insights related to the full Bergen LEADS program, a year-long learning and leadership experience for adults who live or work in Bergen County.  The Bergen LEADS program explores leadership from different aspects of life, including government, law & public safety, healthcare, education, economic development, arts, and the nonprofit sector. Before delivering her remarks as keynote speaker, N.J. Assemblywoman Holly Schepisi (39th District, Center), paused to take this photo with (Left to right): William “Pat” Schuber, Bergen LEADS Seminar Director; Nilufer DeScherer, Partner, Archer, PC; Lynne Harwell Algrant, Bergen LEADS Seminar Co-director and CEO, Bergen Volunteer Center; and Beanne DeGuzman, Director of Civic Engagement, Bergen LEADS. Assemblywoman Schepisi described her “long and difficult journey” to where she is today also as “amazing.”“You always have to test your own ideology,” she said. “You never know what’s going to happen. You have to be flexible. Be willing to have that mentality … Whatever I needed at the time, I was willing to do it.”
