The Leadership Thurston County (LTC) and the Thurston County Chamber Foundation will celebrate June 9 the graduation of the LTC Class of 2021.

Due to limited capacity restrictions, the ceremony will take place at Talking Cedar for the class, sustaining trustees, and the LTC Board of Regents. The event will be streamed live via Facebook beginning at 11:30 a.m.

During the nine-month program, LTC class members met virtually with local, community, and statewide leaders; learned about issues surrounding South Sound communities; expanded networks and resources; and more. Topics ranged from business and economic development to environmental issues, education, and health and human services. This year included a new day in the lineup of topics —Racial Equity Day.

This year’s LTC class marks the 27th graduating class and brings the total program alumni to more than 760 graduates.

Applications are now being accepted for the LTC Class of 2022.
