GLFS stands for the Graduate Leadership Formation Specialization. In 2010, the GLFS students were presented with a “leadership challenge” as part of their coursework and from that challenge, they created what is now known as the Red Winged Leadership Award. Since 2010, each subsequent cohort of GLFS students have successfully built upon and expanded further this tradition of finding and recognizing inspiring leaders.
Each year, the GLFS program features a leadership challenge which is an opportunity for members of the cohort to take an in-depth look at leadership in the Seattle community through the Red Winged Leadership Award. In 2013, the Red Winged Award Finalists were Molly Stearns, Lynette Johnson, and Paul Shoemaker.
