Deer Valley Ski Day

By Lydia Rupnow (23)

On Friday, January 11th… Leadership classes old and new, gathered at Deer Valley Ski Resort for the annual Alumni Ski Day. It was a great day to play hooky and bomb down the slopes with fellow alum.

Thank you to all that came out to enjoy the beautiful day but also a BIG thank you to our friends at Deer Valley who made it happen. Throughout the morning, varying groups went out to enjoy the snow and we all met at the EBS Lounge at Snow Park after for some après action and live music. We would also like to thank our group leads – Shelley Marshall, Chris Neville and Will Hamill (23) for leading the charge on the hill. If you didn’t get a chance to attend this year, keep your ears to the ground for next year. All dues paying alumni received $30 lift tickets ($55 if you were not yet an alumni member), definitely a killer deal and perk of being involved in LPCA.

Thanks again to everyone that attended and to our fine friends at Deer Valley. We’re already looking forward to next year’s event!


Leadership Park City on the KPCW’s Summer Pledge Drive


Thank you to all of the volunteers who donated their time to KPCW’s Summer Pledge Drive on Thursday, August 23rd from 7-8 am and to all of our wonderful alumni that called in and donated. With Myles Rademan, Colleen McGinn (23), and Sara Jo Dickens (23) on the airwaves and Barbara Bretz (15), Carolyn Wawra (20), and Chris Neville (23) in the booth taking calls, the Leadership Alumni was a force to be reckon with. Despite it being the first day of school, the Leadership Alumni encouraged 34 unique callers to call in to the station and totaled $2810. Thank you for supporting our public community radio station and CONGRATULATIONS to Class 1 who fittingly took the lead on this one and raised the most money .

We look forward to the Winter Pledge Drive in February!

MegaMind PubQuiz at Versante Hearth & Bar June 12,…

On Tuesday June 12th, Leadership classes from over the past 23 years came together for a night of trivia at Versante Hearth & Bar.  Hosted by MegaMind PubQuiz, Park City’s local trivia night, the evening was full of learning, laughter, and fun.  But as expected, the competition was fierce with over twelve teams competing for the nightly prize. After six rounds of topics ranging from “Famous Leaders” to “Park City History”, Team Yanni composed of Beth Armstrong (20), Diego Zegarra (20), and Steve Spaulding (21) came out on top and took home a $50 gift certificate to Versante…and all the glory.  Can’t wait for next year’s battle of the brains!
