RPHC has had the privilege of working with The Community Foundation of Herkimer and Oneida Counties to support local initiatives in the Utica area in various capacities over the years. One program that The Community Foundation provides funding for is Leadership Mohawk Valley (LMV), which is run in partnership with Mohawk Valley Community College (MVCC) through the college’s Center for Leadership Excellence.

LMV is a ten-month program that allows participants to connect with institutions in the community to learn more about the challenges they face and the work that’s already being done to overcome those challenges. More importantly, though, the program offers the opportunity for its participants to explore ways they can take on leadership roles in their own professional realms by addressing the issues the local organizations are up against. We’re proud to announce that RPHC’s Project Finance Chief and Vice President Frank Sardelli is a graduate of the LMV program.

Frank shared, “LMV does an outstanding job of bringing local talent together to collaborate and learn from each other’s experiences, as well as provide opportunities to engage with community leaders on various initiatives in our area. For anyone who is presented the opportunity to be a part of LMV, I would highly recommend participating.”

The Community Foundation’s latest newsletter included an article about the community’s dedication to developing and supporting strong leaders. Click here to read the article.

Congratulations to Frank on his initiative and dedication to participating in the LMV program! It’s leaders like him who are helping to build a better tomorrow.
