NH Leadership Series Spring Awards Night
At the NH Leadership Series Spring Awards Night held at UNH Manchester on June 7, many Leadership alumni, family, friends, and IOD staff were present to reunite, network, and connect in the unique way all Leadership graduates and family do. Folks also attended virtually via Zoom, which was a first for the series and a fantastic way to share the experience with those unable to attend in person. For the first Leadership gathering since 2019, the series was able to present the 2020, 2021, and 2022 Annie Forts UP with Leadership Awards and Brianna Dillon Leadership Medals to six outstanding leaders. The Annie Forts UP with Leadership Award is presented annually to current or past NH Leadership Series graduates who represent Annie's legacy through volunteerism and hard work, and also recognizes and celebrates each individual's abilities and differences.

- 2020: Danielle Poirier, Class of 2018
- 2021: Emily James, in honor of Maya James, Class of 2008
- 2022: Jillian Libby, Class of 2011
