Congratulations to Alissa Dodds!

Alissa Dodds of Conroy-Tully Walker Funeral Homes & Cremation Services, Portland, ME, has been awarded the 2019 Selected Leadership Academy Scholarship. She joined the Academy’s 2019-2021 Class that launched at the Leadership Conference in Dallas this Spring.

“It is such an opportunity to have something like this available to me and to have an avenue where people come together and learn from one another as well as their instructors,” she said. “Getting the scholarship for this program will enable me to learn how funeral service practices and procedures are done differently around the country.”


The Selected Leadership Academy offers a unique and rewarding opportunity for members interested in developing leadership skills. Available exclusively to Selected members, the Academy promises to engage and grow participants through interactive conference calls, personal coaching calls and face-to-face experiences over a two-year structured curriculum.

In addition, the recipient will receive $300 each year to help cover the cost of books, fees and other program-related expenses. All other expenses and arrangements related to participating in the Selected Leadership Academy will be the responsibility of the recipient. The total estimated value of this scholarship at the end of two years is $4,890.
