Leadership Springfield was a game-changer for Alina Lehnert. When she was a 40 Under 40 honoree, she had recently graduated from the program, and she’s since put that training to work.

“Leadership Springfield changed the trajectory of my life,” she says.

Ten years later, she’s running for re-election on the Springfield Public Schools board.

In 2018, she received Leadership Springfield’s Kenworthy Award, the highest honor the group bestows, for nearly a decade of service, including board work.

In 2014, she started her leadership development business Lehnert Leadership Group, and she continues to serve as an adjunct faculty member at Evangel.
