“Being a resident, professional, and Developing Leaders Council member in the City of Lowell is rewarding in many ways. I feel I’m part of a community that has so much opportunity for change and growth. As a DLC member I’ve been exposed to people and professional opportunities outside of my everyday circle.”
- Christina Walton, DLC Member
