March 2017 – My Leadership Loudoun Story

Rusty Foster, President Bow Tie StrategiesI grew up in Loudoun County, so naturally, I thought I knew everything there was to know. We even learned about local history and took field trips to all of the historic Loudoun sites in elementary school. However, I was wrong. Leadership Loudoun opened my eyes to more than the history of Loudoun. Leadership Loudoun opened my eyes to the inner workings of the Loudoun County government, nonprofit organizations, and how our local economy depends on taxes and data centers. I choose to live in Loudoun County, to have my business located in Loudoun County, and to play in Loudoun County. I feel like after graduating from Leadership Loudoun, I have a better understanding of how to grow my business in Loudoun County and I’m thankful for that opportunity. And, I met some awesome people that are great friends today!
