Jessica Fette has been announced as a finalist for the 2018 Legacy Next Generation Leader Award. She is one of three finalists for the Government & Public Affairs category.
The Next Generation Leader Awards (NGLAs) are designed to salute the region’s young professionals under the age of 40 for significant accomplishments in their chosen professional field, demonstrated leadership, as well as their contribution to the community.
Nominees are judged by a panel of community leaders and experts in each of 10 distinct categories. Judges select three finalists in each category. Recognition of finalists and the announcement of the winner in each category take place at the annual NGLA program and dinner in July.
I am not a resident of Erlanger but I met her a one of Erlanger’s town meetings on heroin, which she organized. As a City Commissioner she has kept her finger on the pulse of issues that affect the livelihood and quality of life in Erlanger. Since then, I have had many opportunities to watch her grow professionally. I find her to be highly knowledgeable, energetic, and willing to hear all sides of a debate before making decisions. She has all the qualities that make for an outstanding community leader and I endorse her for this award.
