LLY Annual Leadership Award Goes to Dunbar Junior

Sahil-Nair-LLYSahil Nair (Photo courtesy FCPS)LEXINGTON, Ky. (4/10/14) — Leadership Lexington Youth has presented its 2014 Distinguished Leader Award to Sahil Nair, a junior at Paul Laurence Dunbar High School.

He received the plaque April 9 at the close of the LLY graduation luncheon at Transylvania University. Sahil will also be recognized at Commerce Lexington’s annual dinner next February and will get a $1,000 scholarship upon high school graduation.

“Leadership Lexington is aptly named,” Sahil said, citing the benefits of networking with fellow students and local officials. “I’m very proud of the city I live in and want to get more involved in the community.”

LLY is a year-long educational program that enables high school juniors to engage with community leaders and talk about issues, careers, business opportunities and post-secondary options. This year’s class had 129 applicants and 44 students chosen, mostly from Fayette County Public Schools.

“Leadership Lexington has taught me the skills to find my own style of leadership and define it for myself,” said Dunbar’s Meghana Kudrimoti, who spoke at the luncheon. “It teaches you how to break out into the world. We all want to make an impact, and Leadership Lexington has given us those skills.”

The Distinguished Leader Award goes to a class member who demonstrates strong principles, dedication to community service, creativity, good communication and interpersonal skills, and the potential to make a difference in the community. The selection criteria also include attendance record, participation and willingness to reflect on all LLY activities. Class members nominate candidates, and the program’s steering committee selects the winner.

One supporter described Sahil as the epitome of a strong leader, saying “He is understanding, but at the same time, he stands behind his beliefs no matter what.” Others wrote, “He is very humble, and his main purpose in doing all that he does is to help others and improve situations;” “He branches out and spreads energy to all, which all leaders should do;” and “He has the ability to make everyone feel important and shows sincere interest in the community.”
