WCVE Public Radio, in partnership with Leadership Metro Richmond, brings you This I Believe -- in which LMR members reflect and share personal thoughts based on values and beliefs that help to shape our lives, community and society.
Leadership Metro Richmond is a community leadership organization designed to connect and inspire leaders in our region.
This I Believe is an international organization engaging people in writing and sharing essays describing the core values that guide their daily lives. The project is based on a popular 1950s radio series hosted by famed broadcaster Edward R. Murrow.
Today's essay is by Jean Thompson Williams, LMR class of 1991, who serves as a community volunteer after retiring from 23 years in education and 27 years as an entrepreneur in the travel management industry. She has served on numerous boards and commissions.
