Over six months ago their journey began, six students in NAIFA’s Leadership in Life Institute (LILI) embarked on a path of study, introspection, and personal growth. On Tuesday November 19th, these students were joined by NAIFA President Tom Michel and 40 LILI alumni for an online commencement celebration.
Themes of self-improvement, perseverance through tragedy, and life-long friendships formed in the LILI class were in evidence as each graduate took time to share their LILI story.
Next, LILI Moderators Davin Bell from Texas and Aaron Ostler from Nebraska provided their perspectives on Moderating the first national online LILI class. They also described how proud they were of the students.
Each new LILI graduate received their LILI certificate in an online conferment that was followed by a round of applause from all in attendance. The evening ended with open social time during which Tom Michel delivered a heartfelt address to the new graduates.
