In other LSM news:

Eliot Pfanstiehl has worked as a leadership program facilitator for 26 years and has been with Leadership Southern Maryland since its inception in 2008. Now he is on to new adventures as Mr. Pfanstiehl hangs up his facilitator hat in pursuit of other interests.

The decision comes with a mixture of anticipation and reluctance.

“What I love most about facilitating is the ability to observe people face to face in a room, speaking their hopes and dreams so that other people catch that fire,” Mr. Pfanstiehl said. He feels that he’s gained as much as he’s given over the years while leading LSM’s Orientation, Diversity, and Closing sessions. “I grow with each program and I grow with the people in each program.”
