Jim’s Story

Finding His Place in the Community

Jim Pappas

Emerging Leaders Society

Jim Pappas recently moved from Houston to Tulsa and wanted to become part of the local community.

“I saw ELS as the best possible way to become integrated into the community,” Jim said. “I wanted to find a way to meet people, learn about Tulsa and contribute to this great own.”

Jim has been a member since early 2014 and has learned a lot from his fellow ELS members.

“From watching the leaders in ELS I have learned about leadership. It is great to surround yourself with people you can learn from,” Jim said.

“I feel ELS has given more to me than I have given to it. I am excited to continue this journey and contribute more, both to ELS and to Tulsa.”
