• For more than two decades, Leadership Door County (LDC) has prepared leaders to serve the community through an experiential mode of learning. Past LDC alumni have gone on to provide leadership in ways that impact the quality of life and the sustainability of the county’s livelihood. In an effort to recognize those individuals who have gone above and beyond in serving the community through exceptional leadership, Leadership Door County established a Leaders Among Us Award in 2012. The first recipient of the Leaders Among Us award in 2012 was Sherry Mutchler, who has played a pivotal role in the development and sustainability of the Women’s Fund of Door County. Nominees are being sought for the second annual Leaders Among Us award. The announcement of the award recipient and recognition of all nominees will occur at the Leadership Door County Commencement Ceremony on June 17, 2014.

Nominees should be full-time residents of Door County whose leadership has demonstrated significance, effectiveness, inclusiveness and innovation and has not been recognized through other awards. Applications may be downloaded from and submitted by March 15 to LDC, PO Box 874, Sturgeon Bay, WI 54235 or emailed to [email protected].
