Steering Committee

 

The Roan Steering Committee includes outstanding regional leaders who meet periodically to oversee program operations, provide strategic guidance and select each new class of Roan Scholars. Our committee members embody the character, leadership excellence and lifelong impact that we seek in Roan Scholars. Members also serve as informal mentors for current Scholars and Alumni.
