Ryan M. Puckett, principal of two21 LLC, will have the opportunity to advance his community leadership interests as a member of Class XXXVIII of the Stanley K. Lacy Executive Leadership Series.
Puckett is one of 25 young professionals to be accepted into the series, a highly competitive program that seeks to expand the ranks of community leaders by teaching and motivating members to address the needs of central Indiana.
“I am honored to have been chosen to participate in SKL, which has helped many of central Indiana’s most prominent leaders become more effective community leaders,” Puckett said. “It’s humbling to have the opportunity to follow in their footsteps and have the opportunity to make a lasting contribution to our region.”
Class members are chosen because of their significant community involvement and professional achievement; their demonstrated interest in community issues; a record of participation and achievement in voluntary community activities; and their willingness to expand their leadership role in the community.
Sam Odle, Senior Policy Adviser for Bose Public Affairs Group and former COO of IU Health, has been named Moderator for Class XXXVIII. To ensure that the series is timely and topical, each class’s moderator identifies aspects of broad economic and societal issues that are specific to central Indiana for the class to study.
Class XXXVIII will meet monthly from September through June. Participants will interact with local leaders, professional experts and community decision makers to discuss issues such as the region’s quality of life, education and economic development.

Lacy Executive Leadership Series: Formed in 1976, SKL informs and motivates emerging leaders and raises their awareness of community issues and sense of community trusteeship through seminars, tours, reading and interaction with experts, leaders and decision makers. The series is named in honor of Stanley K. Lacy, an Indianapolis banker and active participant in civic projects, who died in a tragic automobile accident in 1973 at the age of 27.
