LGR is a 10-month program that targets and recruits experienced professionals with the goal of developing business and community leaders.“I completed the program myself in 2015 and have been volunteering with the organization ever since,” said Currie.The Rochester Chamber surprised the Steering Committee at its annual awards banquet in January.“It’s humbling and gratifying to share this award with the other members of the Steering Committee,” said Currie. “It’s a program that was very beneficial for me, personally, so serving on the Steering Committee is my own way of giving back.”“We couldn’t be prouder to have such a fantastic business partner and person here at Minimizer,” said Minimizer Chief Visionary Craig Kruckeberg. “Julian is an incredibly selfless person who deserves this award.”LGR and the Steering Committee meet every month throughout the 10-month program, with the group’s focus designed to improve Rochester and the surrounding areas.“During my year in the program, we helped raise funds for the United Way and Rochester Public Library,” said Currie. “The end result expanded the number of mini libraries across Rochester. Our goal was to encourage the area’s youth to read. We ended up with so many books that the surplus will enable the program to continue for the foreseeable future.”AdvertisementIn the future, Currie hopes to lead a class, serving as the group’s guide and mentor as it works its way through the 10-month program.“This is a family. You build lifelong friendships and bonds not only with your fellow classmates, but with other alumni, as well,” said Currie.last_img read more

Assistant Head Coach Shane Gierke did a great job identifying those needs and helping set up some young guys coming through our program for the future as well as a junior impact guy.”Newcomers (6)JT Granat – 6’4” – 220 lbs. – RHP – Northwest Florida StateQuote from Gierke: “He’s a big, strong right-handed pitcher who went to Tate High School. We think he can be a rotation guy right away. He’s a three-pitch guy with a good sinker ball that will give you a chance to win every time.”Tyler Sharp – 6’1” – 175 lbs. – SS/RHP – Pace HSQuote from Gierke: “He’s a three-year starter at shortstop at Pace High School, and he’s a right-handed pitcher. We like his bat, and think he’s going to develop into a nice arm on the mound. But when it comes to swinging the bat, he has a chance to do some things as a freshman.”Matt Sullivan – 5’11” – 190 lbs. – C – Dr. Phillips HSQuote from Gierke: “A big focus of ours is trying to find a freshman catcher to come in and have a chance to play right away. Mike Bradley, the head coach at Dr. Phillips High School, is a great friend who does a great job, and his assistant coach is UWF hall of famer Pete Antoske. So anytime we can get someone from Dr. Phillips it’s always a plus.”Cole Crowder – 6’3” – 210 lbs. – LHP/1B – George Jenkins HSQuote from Gierke: “He’s a dual guy who plays pitcher and first base. We think he’s got a huge future on the mound as a left-handed pitcher. He has a good overhand breaking ball. We really like his frame and what he brings to the future on the mound.”Robert Lopez – 6’1” – 180 lbs. – SS – George Jenkins HSQuote from Gierke: “He’s a strong, physical shortstop who has a lot of pop in his bat. He’s got a lot of potential to do big things with the bat. We expect big things from him as a freshman.”Troy Brown – 6’3” – 200 lbs. – LHP – Lakeland HSQuote from Gierke: “He’s another big left-handed pitcher who has a chance to pitch right away for us in a big role. We think his ceiling as a pitcher is really high. His fastball can get up to 88 miles per hour.”For information on all UWF athletics, visit  #ARGOS#Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more
