WASHINGTON, July 2, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Much about leadership is left to timing and, somewhat, to chance. An executive, for example, might be asked to assume a leadership role when the state of the industry in which the business serves is experiencing unprecedented turmoil. Or perhaps the industry is brand new and each decision has broader, longer-term impacts that will literally shape the business landscape. Each situation poses its own set of challenges. How he or she approaches those challenges can forever define that leader's capabilities.
The Imagine America Foundation has been fortunate to benefit from the right leadership at the right time. It is the IAF's honor to pay tribute to the following three Chairmen of the Board of the Foundation, who provided exactly the right guidance at key moments of our organization's existence. In a special presentation at the 2012 Association of Private Sector Colleges and Universities (APSCU) Convention in Las Vegas, IAF honored those leaders and the key decisions each made in helping us grow the Foundation and its reach within the career college sector of higher education.
The following former chairmen of the Imagine America Foundation were honored on June 21:
