Alum AJ Enchill is among the distinguished group of young professionals to be selected to the prestigious 40 Under Forty in the Berkshires (in Western Massachusetts) for 2019. The district aide to (MA) State Senator Adam Hinds, AJ reflects on his award and his DLE connections:
During my time at the 2018 Gen Now Retreat, a one-on-one conversation with speaker Sally Roberts, Founder of Wrestle Like a Girl, led to an invitation to be her guest at the People’s Portfolio Award Ceremony in New York City. There, I met Dr. Lonnie G. Bunch III, Founding Director of Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture–a true gentleman who encouraged me “to pull others up as I climb.”
The experience is one that I’ll never forget, and it was made possible by the DLE’s impressive networking and coaching opportunities. Participating in the Gen Now Retreat opened the door to opportunities and connections that inspire personal and professional growth.
The DLE celebrates AJ’s leadership, community service and commitment to make his community even better with a special ad created by DLE alum and graphic designer Carleen Leibinger for the 40 Under Forty brochure.
The Dulye Leadership Experience is an official sponsor of the 40 Under Forty program, joining General Dynamics, Guardian, Berkshire Bank and October Muntain Financial Advisors as 2019 program sponsors.
