On November 8 a meeting among organizational leaders was held at Washington and Jefferson College to discuss how the community can work together toward the future success of the city of Washington and the East Washington Borough. About 100 people attended the special gathering, which was hosted by the Greater Washington Civic Leadership Institute. Designed and facilitated by Coro Pittsburgh, the institute exists in order to create a network of leaders who can act together to make progress toward a positive vision for greater Washington.

“We wanted to reach out to people who we can now turn to,” said Fred Fleet, president of the Highland Ridge Community Development Corp. and institute member who coordinated the event. “The idea was to continue with what we have learned” over the past year. The institute was formed nearly a year ago as a collaboration between East Washington, Washington and W&J. It was funded through a grant from the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation.
