    Congrats to all of the members of the new class!

    (what about links to their blogs/sites?)

  2. Honored to have been chosen and looking forward to it!

  3. Seeing the next lineup of the Academy Class is more exciting than the announcement of new players to any professional sport. I wish you my best. May you learn from each other, grow, and teach others.

    Sarah Stelmok has proven again and again to be a formatable leader in our Associate and now she has attained another stepping stone in her career…way to go…
    Congraduations to all the participants…

    Congratulations to you all! VLA will be the most rewarding experience in your real estate career.

  6. That is an awesome lineup! (Not as awesome as the 2007 VLA class, but that’s a tough act)

    Very proud of everyone, but especially proud of Sarah and Christine. They are both among the best people, non-the-less agents, I know. FAAR rocks!

    It’s an amazing journey – take your time to enjoy it!

  7. Jeremy Hart says:

    Thanks all, looking forward to being a part of it!

  8. Gwen Pangle says:

    Welcome to the VLA family! It will be a life changing experience if you allow it to be. My awesome 2008 class is getting ready to graduate and spread their leadership wings. I am sorry to have it end, but very proud to watch them grow.

  9. Cindy Stackkhouse says:

    Congratulations to the 2009 class. You are joining the ranks of a wonderful group of people who continue the journey of giving back while moving forward in any leadership position chosen. Enjoy the ride!

  10. How exciting for the VLA Class of 2009. Congratulations to each and everyone of you. Your lives are about to change in a way that is hard to comprehend right now. As the year unfolds you will realize you are making some new best friends, co-workers, co-leaders and much more. Have a great learning experience and have great fun too. It’s hard not to. As Cindy said “Enjoy the Ride”

  11. Doug Devitre says:

    Congratulations! I am finishing up my experience at the Missouri Association of REALTORS Leadership Academy and it was incredible. Funny to see how competitive the “Best Class” is similar across state lines. In my opinion the 2008 class is the best:)

  12. Tina Merritt says:

    Congrats to all! I hope you get a lot out of it and I hope you share with us too!

  13. John Daly says:

    Congratulations to the 2009 Leadership Academy Class. What you all are willing to do not only benefits yourself personally but causes our State Association to be better for having individuals like you willing to better themselves. VAR, your local association and Virginia should be proud of your involvement.
