Collins Group Realty is very proud of the dedication and success of Ryan Stefonick, Bluffton Real Estate Specialist, for completing the year-long Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce Leadership Program of 2017.
Participants must go through an application process, which includes receiving recommendations and an interview, to be accepted into the program. The Leadership class is an intensive program consisting of community involvement/service, leadership and community based curriculum educating participants on the local government, economy, history, etc. Ryan’s experience with the program included a trip to our state capitol in Columbia, SC. He also spent hours in the classroom learning from various specialized individuals about Hilton Head Island and Bluffton, as well as serving in the community. The program is also a great opportunity to network with various professionals – many keeping in touch through the years.
Each class must also come up with a project which will give back and better the community. This year’s class dedicated a newly planted (replacement) tree in Shelter Cove Park named “Matthew’s Oak,” to first responders during Hurricane Matthew of Oct 2016. The class also raised funds for the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry to replenish their disaster relief fund.
