Testimonials From Our Fellows

Bailey Borzecki

Bailey Borzecki ’18
Boston Beer Company

“Even though I have moved on from the great first state, Leadership Delaware will forever be a part of shaping who I am as a coworker, friend, family member and human. I learned so many invaluable things about the way a state functio
ns: from education to government to business, and I can bring that with me wherever I go. In addition, I’ve gained the confidence to be more engaged in my company and community, because I have collected and connected the dots so carefully laid out for us by LDI.”

Casey Kenton

Casey H. Kenton ‘09,
Investors Realty, Inc.

“LDI is a network like no other, especially in a small community like Delaware. As a graduate from the inaugural class of 09’, I have elected to stay involved in the program for the past 11 years. LDI has paid immeasurable dividends to me as a result of the ever growing sphere of colleagues, friends and family.

I owe a lot to the program and I will forever be grateful.”

Christine Eisenhauer

Christine Eisenhauer ’18,
Relay Graduate School of Education

“I knew a lot about my own field (education) before joining Leadership Delaware, but being a fellow took my understanding of the interconnectedness and intersectionality of my work with different facets of government and the private sector to another level.  As an alum, I often reflect on how Leadership Delaware gave me access to other leaders within their own professions.  As a result, my network is significantly expanded and my understanding of and ability to do my own work is stronger.”

Jerome Rogers

Having been continually developed over the last 16 years as a leader in the military, I know much about professionalism, discipline and camaraderie; my experience with LDI has taken these elements to new levels. I am truly excited going into every session and every new challenge.”
