Kohrman Jackson & Krantz LLP Associate Alex Ebert graduated from the Leadership Upper Arlington program Wednesday, joining the ranks of notable Columbus-area business and community leaders who graduated the program.
For over two decades, “Leadership UA” has fostered the leadership skills of central-Ohio businesspeople, civil servants and passionate professionals who dedicate time each month to study leadership and plan community betterment projects. This year, Alex and the other graduates organized a community-wide fundraiser to purchase giant games (Connect Four and Jenga sets as wide and tall as the humans playing it).
The games will be free to use for all Upper Arlington community events, and residents can check them out from the Upper Arlington Parks and Recreation Department. Alex and the other graduates are teaming up with community organizations and the Special Olympics to stage the games at various Upper Arlington shindigs throughout the summer.
“We wanted something that would entertain children, and children-at-heart, during our community events,” said Alex, who practices business litigation for KJK. “Meeting our fundraising goal was the icing on the cake of a fantastic year of leadership training. From civility to community engagement, from philosophy of leadership to practical application, Leadership UA develops character and brings the community together.”
