Andrew P. Gates – Class 24

After living in Paducah my entire life, I did not believe that there was much that I could learn about my city.  However, with each class session I found new and exciting amenities that Paducah had to offer.  I never knew that there was so much going on in the town each and every day.  I also found the experience to be one of the best networking tools for my career.  I gained many friends within my class, whom I still keep in contact with.  I enjoyed my experience in the class so much, that I decided to give back to the program by participating on the Leadership Paducah Foundation Board of Directors.  I can truly say that this opportunity has assisted me in my personal and career development.
