Akron Municipal Court Administrative/Presiding Judge David Hamilton Selected for Leadership Ohio’s 2023 Class

Akron Municipal Court Administrative/Presiding Judge David Hamilton has been appointed to Leadership Ohio’s 2023 class.

Thirty-five individuals were carefully selected out of more than 120 applications. Judge Hamilton and the other 34 Leadership Ohio Fellows will engage in a series of intensive sessions that cover topics such as the state judiciary, small town resurgence and civil discourse while being exposed to an influential network of decision makers.

Fellows will develop Ohio Impact Projects taking direct action on a pressing issue or opportunity to benefit Ohio. Importantly, they will build impactful relationships with other leaders from around the state with goals for lasting change.

The program lasts eight months and during the eight months, Leadership Ohio participants will engage in in-depth explorations of critical questions, challenges and opportunities facing Ohio and its people.

"We are excited to welcome the Class of 2023 to Leadership Ohio," said Dr. Lisa Duty, executive director of Leadership Ohio. "These distinguished individuals are part of a growing network of change-makers and innovators who are on the leading edge of solutions for a future-driven Ohio.”

Upon graduation, Fellows are inducted into the Leadership Ohio alumni network comprised of accomplished, diverse, talented Ohioans. Leadership Ohio’s alumni reside in Ohio cities big and small, lead major companies and nonprofits, launch small businesses, and serve in government agencies, elected offices, commissions and Ohio’s boardrooms.

“I am honored to be a part of this year’s Leadership Ohio class,” said Judge Hamilton. “This is an exciting opportunity to get more involved with statewide issues that impact every citizen in Ohio. I enjoy learning from others and their journeys and I look forward to connecting with leaders who represent various counties throughout our state.”
