Leadership Bonita Alumni: Meet Debra Haley

Why did you go through the Leadership Bonita Program?

I wanted to learn more about our community behind the scenes – to know about those things we often take for granted but are critical to making our community the best it can be

What job/company were you at the time of the class?

Executive Director of New Horizons of SWFL

What is your lasting memory of the Program?

Walking along Old 41 with $2 looking for a way to buy lunch – it was a Social Issues day assignment.  It wasn’t easy, but after teaming with a few others in the class we enjoyed a lunch of chips, lunch meat and sodas.  

What was one of your biggest ‘take-away’ from it?

There is a tremendous amount of work going on from police and fireman, to city council and businesses.  They all care about making our community a better place to live and grow.  Bonita Springs Leadership is an opportunity more residents should take!

Where/what are you doing now?

Still serving as the  ED for New Horizons
