We are proud to announce that Jackson Walker partner Ann M. Leafstedt has been selected as a member of Leadership San Antonio’s Class 43. Leadership San Antonio (LSA) was created in 1975 by the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce to help identify community leaders. It is now considered the premier program for existing and emerging leaders in the Bexar County area. 

LSA class members are selected from all segments of the community for their dedication to public service, contribution to their chosen profession, and commitment to increasing their level of service as evidenced by their participation in key leadership positions. LSA’s goal is to help mold sensitive, responsible, committed leaders, thus ensuring a prosperous future for San Antonio.

Ann commented:

Several Jackson Walker attorneys have been members of previous LSA classes. I have heard so many good things about the program and am both delighted and honored to have this opportunity to participate. It is an exciting time for San Antonio, and I look forward to contributing to a vibrant future for our city.
