On June 8, 2010, McCorkle, Johnson & McCoy Partner, Robert McCorkle, was named President of the Emerging Leaders Committee of The Savannah Community Foundation for 2010-2011.
The ELC consists of young professionals displaying potential for future community leadership who are sponsored by the monetary donations of individuals, businesses, corporations and organizations in the Savannah community. The ELC uses these sponsorship funds held and managed by The Savannah Community Foundation to make discretionary grants to requesting non-profit entities within the region. Through this process, ELC members are exposed first-hand to problems, needs and resources of the Savannah area, increasing their awareness of community issues and programs.
As President of the ELC, Robert will serve as an ex-officio member of The Savannah Community Foundation board, which is comprised of some of Savannah’s premier business and philanthropic leaders.
