"Little did I know that LGC would dramatically and radically change the course of my life.
It is an extraordinary education in a small space of time. The Program allowed me the luxury of focusing
on the critical challenges facing the metropolitan area and it encouraged me to believe I could play an
active role in making our community better."
Valerie Bowman Jarrett, Executive Vice President, The Habitat Company and Board President, Chicago Board of Trade, LGC Class of '86
