Leadership Southern Maryland 2021 Homecoming

LSM’s Homecoming celebration returned “Under the Lighthouse” at Calvert Marine Museum on October 7. Graduates and friends enjoyed the opportunity to meet new members of the LSM family and connect with classmates. Bidding was fierce in both the silent and live auctions raising over $3700 in support of LSM’s mission to educate and inspire current and emerging leaders.  

Special thanks to LSM’s Alumni Committee, headed by Christa Hood LSM’18, for planning such a great event and Jenny Plummer Welker LSM’21 for capturing so many wonderful photos.  Check out the Flickr album at https://flic.kr/s/aHsmWXQsyz
