Leadership Ocala Marion Jane Mansfield Leadership Award Winner Named
Ocala, Florida (May 16, 2015) – The Leadership Ocala Marion Class XXVIII has named Bart Rowland as the recipient of the Jane Mansfield Leadership Award. This award is given to a class member for exemplary leadership and outstanding dedication to our community through service.
Bart Rowland is a native of Kentucky who recently relocated to Ocala to begin work as a benefits specialist at Advanced Benefit Services. He served as Vice President of his LOM class this year.
At the last session of each LOM year, class members vote on the class member who exemplifies the leadership characteristics shown by Jane, who was a graduate of LOM Class III and served on the LOM Board of Regents for many years. The Jane Mansfield award winner is announced at the Class graduation by the prior year’s winner.
A fellow classmate of Bart’s noted, “Bart has been an encourager throughout the entire program. I can recall him telling several of us, "Our class should be known as the class that gives. He assisted with organizing the Painting with a Twist fundraiser where we supported Marion Therapeutic Riding Association. In addition, he coordinated class donations for Drew's baby and Christina's wedding. He recently volunteered at the Feel Downtown event, which supported our local Boys' & Girls' Club.”
Leadership Ocala Marion is now accepting applications for Class XXIX. Applications will be accepted until June 15th. For more information about this program, please contact Jaye Baillie at 352.629.8051 or Jaye@OcalaCEP.com.
