Core 24 Charities sponsors Leadership Lake Tahoe class

After 22 years JoAnn Conner thought she knew everything there was to know about the Lake Tahoe Basin. Wrong. Through Leadership Lake Tahoe she has discovered that there is much more to learn about how things run on the South Shore.
Conner is part of the second leadership class. Leadership is a product of the Tahoe-Douglas and South Lake Tahoe chambers of commerce. It is through a grant from Core 24 Charities that Conner is able to attend the 10-month educational program. The Stateline-based charity was formed last fall by members of the inaugural leadership class. They have in turn become a nonprofit charity which put on the Tahoe Winter Expo last fall and is planning for the second Winter Expo Nov. 18. Core 24 Charities is also instrumental in forging ahead with plans to create a more appealing Linear Park along Lake Tahoe Boulevard as well as contributing to the South Shore in other ways.
Core 24 Charities is excited to have Conner as its grant recipient because she embodies all the qualities that the organization stands for. She has a love for the area, a desire to know more, to be involved, to give back and a commitment to make the South Shore a better place for everyone – including three of her four children who call the area home.
“We are proud to sponsor JoAnn in Leadership Lake Tahoe. Her enthusiasm is going to help her class leave a lasting mark on this community,” said Roni Davis, president of Core 24 Charities.
Conner is an independent associate for Prepaid Legal Services in South Lake Tahoe and project director for the Washoe Heritage Information Network.
“I have learned so much,” Conner said of Leadership Lake Tahoe. “I have a greater understanding of the agencies and the need to interact with Nevada. Those were eye-openers to me.”
