Beyond his professional accomplishments, Lenertz is an active and dedicated member of the community. He currently serves on the Board of the Myrtle Beach Regional Economic Development Corporation and the Atlantic Collegiate Academy, a new charter high school that is about to complete its first academic year and will be moving into its newly constructed facility this fall. His previous board memberships include the YMCA and the Christian Academy of Myrtle Beach, reflecting his commitment to community service and development.
