Celebrating a Legacy of Leadership: Honoring Rev Hurmon Hamilton

A great leader is someone who sees opportunities to effect change and rallies support to acheive their goals.   It takes a special gift to be able to do this across faith, political and racial boundaries.  Reverend Hurmon Hamilton was blessed with this gift.  In his role as pastor at the Roxbury Presbyterian Church (RPC), he has worked for 18 years with like minded people in the Boston area to implement educational and health care programs.  On March 22nd, a fund raiser was held at UMASS Boston to support the organizations that thrived under his leadership, the RPC Social Impact Center and the Greater Boston Interfaith Organization (GBIO).  I had the great fortune to assist photographer Matthew Muise at this event.  Reverend Hamilton and his family are relocating to their home town near San Francisco.  They will be missed, but the legacy of leadership will continue with Reverend Liz Walker as the new pastor at RPC.
