Each year the graduating class of Leadership Lee County gathers to decide how to give back to the community. The Leadership Class of 2015-2016 has followed the lead of its immediate predecessors to continue Leadership Royale as a second annual event. In so doing it brings together the leadership skills of four chambers in continuing a tradition and making a bigger impact in the community.
