Dr. Andrew Daire, dean of the VCU School of Education, and Dr. Kimberly McKnight, director of the new Petersburg Teacher Residency program, have been selected to participate in Leadership Metro Richmond’s (LMR) Quest Class of 2019.

More than 2,000 community leaders have participated in the Quest program since LMR began in 1980. The 10-month program includes membership training, a regional immersion experience, seminars on leadership topics and regional issues, and multiple networking opportunities.

"I look forward to this opportunity to connect with such a diverse group of area leaders, and to work with Dr. McKnight and others to develop long-term solutions to some of Richmond’s regional challenges," said Daire.

The program for the Class of 2019 kicks off with orientation in September, and runs through June 2019.
