Lydia Earhart

Shreveport, La. – Lydia Earhart, Director of Marketing and Community Relations at The Glen, has been selected as to be a part of the 2022 Larry Minnix Leadership Academy program through LeadingAge, a national organization in aging services.

Earhart will join leaders in the aging industry from around the nation for a yearlong curriculum drawing on adult learning theory delving into the core principles of reflective leadership through a variety of components.

“I excited for this journey! LeadingAge has open my eyes to a new world in aging services. I see the Leadership Academy as an opportunity – not only for me, but for The Glen – to be able to engage with other communities and explore my leadership role in a natural setting,” Earhart said.

Earhart joined The Glen in 2016 after a lengthy career in journalism. She has been instrumental in the planning, marketing and sales of Redbrook at The Glen, the community’s newest option for independent living.

LeadingAge is a national organization representing more than 5,000 nonprofit aging services providers and other mission-minded organizations that touch millions of lives every day. The Glen has been a member of LeadingAge for 17 years.
