Williams Completes FOCUS St. Louis Leadership Program and Tenure on University of Notre Dame Board
The goal of the FOCUS St. Louis Leadership Program is to identify local leaders who possess a deep and active commitment to community improvement and arm them with the tools, resources, and connections needed to lead more effectively and make our region stronger. The annual cohort is limited. The admission process is selective. Lucky for Access, Executive Director Shelly Williams was accepted into the immersive, nine-month program this past year and graduated in June, joining a select group of influential leaders who have completed the curriculum. Equally exciting, Shelly was also recently featured in her alma mater’s (the University of Notre Dame) alumni magazine for her work creating more equitable communities across St. Louis and leading the board of the Black Alumni of Notre Dame. Congratulations to Shelly for these well-deserved honors!
