“The Leadership Program that I was able to attend was so beneficial to me and the leadership position I hold at Haleyville City Schools. It afforded me the opportunity to network with other professionals in the community and build a relationship with them. I feel like all the activities that were planned were valuable in helping me become a better leader for our community.” – Chere’ Fetter

Great program. Made contacts that will last a lifetime. Great mix of economic development and political understanding. – Scott Knight
