The scholarship will provide Vaughan-King with 50% of the tuition cost for Leadership Prince William (LPW), an innovative, nine-month program that prepares existing and emerging community leaders for leadership positions in business, local government and community affairs. YPNOVA, a council of the Prince William Chamber of Commerce, created the scholarship in early 2011 to fulfill its objective of engaging young professionals in the community and helping them to realize their full leadership potential.
A self-described community advocate, Rebecca says that she finds it hard to say “no” when not-for-profit organizations ask for her help. In that vein, ImagineDesign, owned by she and her husband Patrick King, are working with students at ITT Tech to design logos for not-for-profit organizations that do not already have one. She is also a member of the National Capital Area Red Cross Council where she helps raise funds and plan events. Rebecca looks forward to her time in Leadership Prince William as a means to “develop the skills that would enable [her] to better serve [her] community.”
