Westchester County Association’s Young Professionals Group Selects Marya Ugolnik of Sleepy Hollow for This Exceptional Professional Development Opportunity

(WHITE PLAINS, NY – October 14) Marya Ugolnik has been selected for a prestigious professional opportunity that will enhance her leadership and management skills and help her have a greater positive impact on her community. As the winner of the 2013-2014 Westchester County Association Young Professionals Group Scholarship for Leadership Westchester, the Sleepy Hollow resident will participate in an intensive, nine-month program geared toward preparing today’s passionate professionals for tomorrow’s positions of influence.

This signature program of The Volunteer Center of United Way provides passionate, knowledgeable, and highly skilled leaders with an in-depth understanding of how nonprofits work, and exposes them to leadership concepts taught at the nation’s top business schools. Through a dynamic combination of lively classroom discussions, collaborative fieldwork, and self-study, the Leadership Westchester experience shapes the lives of people who want to help improve the communities in which they live and work. The program has graduated hundreds of successful alumni, including Pat Braja, Development Director, Westchester Library System (2005); Larry Gottlieb, President and CEO at the Hudson Valley Economic Development Corporation (2010); and Katherine Stipicevic, senior IT manager at Pepsi Beverages Company (2013).

Ugolnik, a senior recruiter at Concorde Personnel in White Plains, was selected for the scholarship from a competitive field of applicants based on her commitment to Westchester County and desire for community involvement. A recent transplant from New York City to Sleepy Hollow, Ugolnik said she is excited about establishing roots in Westchester and becoming an advocate for the advancement of the region.

“My experience includes volunteering with young children who need mentoring, and working with disabled adults who need jobs. But I also am interested in sharpening my leadership skills and learning how to have an even greater positive impact on my surrounding community,” said Ugolnik. “Leadership Westchester is a unique program that will help me hone my abilities, allowing me to have a more effective professional life as well.”

Each Leadership Westchester class size is small – no more than 20 – and includes a mix of individuals from business, the public sector, and non-profit organizations. The program runs from October through June.

“We are so pleased to offer this opportunity to a talented individual like Marya Ugolnik,” said Olivia Ecker, chairwoman of the WCA Young Professionals executive board and a graduate of Leadership Westchester. “I know first-hand the benefits of Leadership Westchester, and we are committed to developing the upcoming generation of business leaders not only for their betterment but for the betterment of Westchester County.”
