The only way to make communities strong is to work together. AL’s business partners are an integral part of our leadership network. Meet two of the local organizations helping us BE Transformational!
Since 2010, Jerry Korum has modeled the leadership way for us by investing not just the support of his charitable foundation, but becoming personally involved in our programs, particularly Advancing Leadership Youth (ALY). He has shared his professional experiences and personal wisdom with hundreds of AL learners during program days and site visits to Korum Automotive Group. Jerry is also a regular table host at Evening with the Stars. In addition to partnering with us, the Korum for Kids Foundation provides funding to many other efforts to make life better for our children.
The team at Wild Waves Theme and Water Park in Federal Way are fully invested in community success. Not only do they manage a major family destinationwith a 40 year history – the only one like it in the state, but they also provide lots of local youth with job opportunities every year.
Wild Waves joins us this year as a first time Develop Level Sponsor. General Manager Todd Suchen, ALA ’17 and Human Resources Manager Mary Bigham, ALA ’18 are both personally invested as members of the AL Nation. Welcome to the team, Wild Waves!
