About Leadership St. Pete® Class of 2022
The LSP Class of 2022 was a diverse class of 39 leaders, following a tradition of seating a class diversely representative of the St. Pete community. Class members work in variety of career fields, including accounting, architecture, the arts, banking & finance, education, engineering, healthcare & wellness, information technology, law, marketing, real estate, and so much more. Some class members work for the City, the county, local nonprofit organizations, and for-profit businesses of every size.
The class kicked off in December with an Orientation Dinner, followed by three leadership development retreats and 11 topical seminars including St. Pete History, healthcare, local government, and a three day trip to Tallahassee to learn about State Government.
Additionally the class worked tirelessly to support a local nonprofit for their community service component of the program.
LSP Class of 2022 Waves of Inspiration Class Project
The LSP Class of 2022 is proud to announce the launch of its class project, “Waves of Inspiration,” to make significant capital improvements to the Clam Bayou Marine Education Center located in South St. Petersburg.
The Center is a community outreach and educational facility for programs that inspire youth to become active environmental and ocean stewards. Students are encouraged to learn more about careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) — an especially critical mission for underserved communities that traditionally lack access to such programming. The Center also provides professional development to over a hundred teachers annually.
The core project mission is to enhance the outdoor spaces around the Clam Bayou Marine Education Center by May 2022 as a way to foster improved comfort, enjoyment, and by extension, enhanced learning.
Your donation makes a difference! The LSP Class of 2022 relies on community support and donations to make the “Waves of Inspiration” project a reality.
Create cool, attractive surface areas to extend teaching and recreational space to outdoor areas during the hot summer months
Enhance accessibility through inviting connectors and pathways
Improve landscaping with native Florida seaside plants to educate the youth about coastal ecology.
The class of 2022 raised more than $115,000 in case and in-kind services and donated more than 750 volunteer hours to make much needed repairs and improvements for the Clam Bayou Marine Education Center.
