Vice President: Keith Kirkpatrick, South Shore Leadership Center
Stevens began his interim role Sept. ..., 9 Sept 2015 [cached]
Stevens began his interim role Sept. 1 and will remain in that role while the SSLC conducts a search to find a permanent replacement for Keith Kirkpatrick, SSLC's outgoing president and executive director.
Kirkpatrick, who announced in June that he would be leaving the SSLC to pursue other professional and personal opportunities, had led the SSLC for 13 years. Kirkpatrick will serve in an advisory capacity to the Center and facilitate LNI and SLYCE sessions during the transition. The SSLC offers its signature programs, Leadership Northwest Indiana (LNI) and the South Shore Leadership Youth for Community Engagement (SLYCE) Program.
"On behalf of the Board, I want to thank Keith for his significant contributions and many years of service.
"The Board as well as the more than 1,200 LNI and SLYCE alumni appreciate Keith's dedicated service to the Center and his leadership in developing successful programs designed to improve the quality of life in northwest Indiana."

Leaders as Heroes -, 1 July 2013 [cached]
"Those who we honor tonight are the founders, risk-takers and the doers who make things happen," Keith Kirkpatrick told guests while thanking the event's diamond sponsors, NIPSCO, Citizens Financial Bank and Northwest Indiana Business Quarterly.
"Often leaders are overlooked or not recognized because that is not what they seek or even what they want. They are the unsung heroes of our region," says Kirkpatrick, president and CEO of Leadership Northwest Indiana.
In closing the event, Kirkpatrick says true leaders accept the responsibility for addressing a problem, seeing a project through, or getting something done.
