    In December 2017, the United Corpus Christi Chamber of Commerce and UCCCC Foundation named Adam Farrell the 2017 BIZZY Awards LCC Servant Leader Honoree.  Way to go, Adam! 

    Here's a little something about and from our amazing friend: 

    Adam Farrell is a graduate of Leadership Corpus Christi, Class 31.  He was a member of the Leadership Corpus Christi Class 42, 43, 44 Steering Committees and was the Steering Committee's General Chair for Class 45.

    Adam stated,  "To be recognized as a servant leader is an unbelievable honor.  And to know that I was nominated by my peers who have studied what it truly means to be a servant leader is pretty mind blowing.

    In my life I have been fortunate enough to be exposed to many great servant leaders who entered my life at just the right time.  I would like to name a few of them now; my parents Stephen and Adele Farrell, Coach Caspar Wenzel, James "Frog" Sullivan, Dr.Scott Elliff and the entire Leadership Corpus Christi Class 45 Steering Committee.

    These men and women showed me what it looked like to naturally want to serve first and then consciously choose to lead.  Without their guidance, stewardship and friendship I would not be who I am today.

    Thank you to my wife and kids who have sacrificed many nights, weekends and family vacations so that I can strive to make a positive impact on our community.

    To my Leadership Corpus Christi Class 45 Steering Committee, thank you for your time and commitment to positively impact 30 great emerging leaders in our community.  I am a better person for our time together.

    I am honored and humbled to accept this year's Leadership Corpus Christi's Servant Leader of the Year award. Thank you."

    As this year's Board Chair, I welcome our newest members from Class XLV and thank our fellow alumni that continue to support Leadership Corpus Christi Alumni Association by renewing your annual membership.

    Our LCCA board of directors got off to a quick start in mid July with a board retreat that was facilitated by LCCA City Councilwoman Debbie Lindsey-Opal. Debbie did a fantastic job and helped us re-focus our thoughts and energy to ask ourselves many questions in order to determine what's important for the future of our organization... How can we build on the successes of our Association's past and make it even better?

    Hurricane Harvey derailed us as a Board and much of our focus rightly shifted to take care of more pressing problems. Although some of our members are still in the process of trying to recover, now is the time to put on our hard hats and unite to make sure we take advantage of the opportunities that are ahead of us.

    Your Board and Committee Chairs are working through a strategic planning process that uses our mission and vision statements to help us identify our critical issues and to better our organization. We are also strategizing on membership benefits and how we can expand our dues paying member base by re-engaging past LCC graduates who are not as engaged as we'd like. We invite and urge you to help us, so please let us know how you feel we can accomplish this together.

    Stay tuned for fun upcoming events & activities:

    • Class XLVI updates and other LCCA information!
    • Merry Holidays Party in December.
    • The 10th Annual Roast (HINT: It's not your ordinary roast this year...) right around the corner in February.

    Best wishes,

    Ed Cantu
