Charleston County School District’s (CCSD) Chief Financial Officer, Channa Williams and Director of Strategic Engagement Maggie Dangerfield, were recently named to the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Charleston Class of 2023. Williams and Dangerfield were selected through a competitive application process.
The mission of Leadership Charleston is to identify and motivate emerging leaders and to develop their leadership potential by introducing them to the realities, opportunities, and challenges of civic and business communities. Graduates experience the power of working with other community leaders and organizations for positive growth and advancement of the region.
Williams and Dangerfield are part of the 49th Leadership class, which is made up of individuals representing a diverse cross-section of public and private businesses and educational institutions throughout the Lowcountry. The program started this fall and will last for nearly 10 months; highlights include strategic collaboration, work sessions, and a trip to the State House.
“We are proud to have Channa and Maggie represent our district in this prestigious professional development opportunity,” said Don Kennedy, CCSD’s Superintendent of Schools. “They possess an array of knowledge, experience, and commitment that will benefit the entire Class of 2023, and through this program, the community overall.”
Once this group graduates in August next year, members of the Leadership Charleston Class of 2023 will become Leadership Charleston Alumni, a distinguished group of leaders that includes Chamber Board of Directors, elected officials, and prominent local leaders.
