South Carolina Professional Graduates from the Women’s Campaign School at Yale
Greenville, SC – Local entrepreneur Stacey Lemmond graduated on Saturday, July 18, 2009, from the 2009 Women’s Campaign School (WCS) at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. The Women's Campaign School at Yale is a nonpartisan, issue-neutral political campaign training program. The school’s mission is to provide the best training in the world for women who want to run for office, move up the ladder to higher elective office, or who want to support other women running for public office. Yale’s WCS offers this five day extensive training program once a year in order to train women to run political campaigns and to advance their careers in public service.
With South Carolina statistically lagging behind other states regarding women in politics, it was an honor for Lemmond to be selected for this highly recognized and prestigious political campaign program. Lemmond joined women from around the world for the 2009 WCS program. The program offers valuable resources for its graduates as they forge into the political arena in a variety of capacities. Among the skills taught through WCS are campaign budgeting, fundraising, and management both in the public arena as well as behind the scenes.
