INDIANAPOLIS (Jan. 2, 2018) – State Rep. Holli Sullivan (R-Evansville) was recently elected unanimously to represent the Indiana Republican State Committee on the Lugar Series Board of Governors.
“The Lugar Series has a special place in my heart, not only as an alum, but because of the ways they empower women to become leaders,” Sullivan said. “I am looking forward to adding value to the Lugar Series Board of Governors from my position as secretary for the Indiana Republican State Committee.”
Sullivan was elected to fill the vacancy created by Beth Boyce’s recent resignation.
“Holli will be such a great asset to our board as she brings her expertise as a state legislator, Republican State Committee board member and community business leader,” said Anne Hathaway, Lugar Series Executive Director. “I look forward to working with Holli to encourage Hoosier women to become involved in public service at the local, state and federal levels.”
The Lugar Series Board of Governors reviews the program’s finances, promotes recruitment and alumni engagement and works to build a statewide network of women.
Sullivan is a Lugar Series alumna, and was a part of the 2009-2010 Lugar Series class. Each year, 20 Hoosier women are selected for the Lugar Series to take part in the eight-month leadership program. Applications for the 2018-2019 Lugar Series class will be available June 1, 2018.
The Richard G. Lugar Excellence in Public Service Series is a nonprofit organization inspired by former Indiana Senator Richard G. Lugar, as a women’s leadership development program designed to increase the number of Republican women in local, state and national elective and appointive offices. Since the organization’s inception in 1990, the program has trained 489 Hoosier women in 28 classes to enter public service. The Lugar Series led to the creation of a national series of programs, which have trained more than 2,000 women from across the nation.
