LEX T. ECKENRODE SCHOLARSHIP FOR PELS

“Lead from the Heart”

Lex T. Eckenrode was the CEO of the Virginia Police Chiefs Foundation and retired Deputy Director of the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services. Leading by example and providing inspiration and encouragement to all of those he came in contact with, Mr. Eckenrode built relationships that created an atmosphere in the Commonwealth of Virginia that has allowed law enforcement leaders to flourish.

His message to the graduates of the Professional Executive Leadership School (PELS) was not about great leadership theories or applications, but more about how these individuals look at themselves as leaders at home, at work and in their community. He asked each graduate to think about the legacy they will leave, not just in their professional career, but in everyday life. He shared with the graduates that life is all about relationships. If they cannot build relationships based upon what comes from their hearts, then they will not be very successful leaders.

With this message in mind, the graduates of the 24th Session of PELS created the Lex T. Eckenrode Scholarship for PELS. This scholarship has been established to honor the legacy that Mr. Eckenrode created through his vision and his values and is to be awarded to individuals who portray the ability to acquire the leadership qualities that Mr. Eckenrode showed us all and inspired in those around him to create within themselves.
