Community Leaders19 Nov 2007 / Hostile Witness
I’ve got here an email from the Irvine Public Schools Foundation (IPSF), soliciting online donations at the IPSF website.
Also on the website is a page listing the names of the IPSF board members, along with their corporate affiliation. Seven of the board members have no corporate affiliation and instead are given the tagline of “Community Leader.”
Question: What in the world is a Community Leader?!
How does one acquire such a designation, other than not having a real job?
Couldn’t we just identify them as Volunteers or Parents or Parent Volunteers, instead of making them out to be some sort of tribal chieftains?
Based on the one Community Leader that I actually know personally, I’d say a more appropriate label would be Community Nuisance or Gadfly.
