LANSING — Ludington Second Ward City Councilor Kathy Winczewski was recently honored by the Michigan Municipal League for earning Level Four graduate status of the MML’s Elected Officials Academy.

The EOA is an ongoing four-level program that educates and recognizes elected officials across the state for their dedication to becoming as professional and knowledgeable as possible in the role of public servant. The voluntary program was created in 1997 by a board of elected officials working with League staff.

Winczewski began attending the academy in 2019, earning the Level 1 Award (Education), followed by the Level 2 Award (Leadership) in 2020, Level 3 Award (Governance) in 2022 and the most recent Level 4 Award (Ambassador) in March.

“I am proud of earning the highest level of achievement from the Elected Officials Academy,” Winczewski said. “It did take quite a bit of work over several years, but it was a worthwhile experience.”

The Michigan Municipal League honored the Elected Officials Academy (EOA) 2024 Graduates on March 13, at the League’s Capital Conference in Lansing.

“Congratulations to this year’s Elected Official’s Academy graduates,” said League Board President Robert E. Clark, mayor of Monroe. “The League is proud to provide programming like this to our members. The EOA program is an amazing resource for our local elected officials and helps them become the best public servants they can be. Their commitment is something to celebrate.”
