Assuredly, Leadership Knoxville would not be the organization it is today without the foresight of our founder, Jim Haslam, and the support of three key organizations - the Junior League of Knoxville, the Knoxville Chamber, and the United Way of Greater Knoxville. These organizations along with the 1984 Steering Committee; Wayne Adams, Bill Arant, Patricia Ball, Donna Cobble, Ann Cooper, Jim Haslam, Dale Keasling, and Bill Sansom, shared the vision to create an organization that crossed economic and social boundaries to inspire individuals to serve as catalysts for positive change. Our organization has a commitment to serve Knoxville. Collectively, we can achieve our vision - "Every Leader a Servant Leader."
