Twenty individuals have been selected for this year’s Leadership Lincoln class, which will take place once a month starting in September and ending in April.
Each month, participants will learn about a variety of information, such as team building, healthcare and social services, government and judicial information, education, economic and workforce development, industry, media and diversity, tourism, and more.
Established by the Ruston-Lincoln Chamber of Commerce, Leadership Lincoln has provided hundreds of individuals the opportunity to cultivate community knowledge and personal leadership skills. Leadership Lincoln promotes civic responsibility by encouraging involvement, as well as developing enthusiasm and dedication.
“Leadership Lincoln encourages participants to ask the questions ‘why’ and ‘how’ as they look at all facets of our community and region,” said Judy Copeland, Chamber president and Leadership Lincoln facilitator. “Leadership Lincoln’s mission is quite simple: to develop the leadership skills and qualities within our students so they will become well-rounded leaders in their workplace, their church, a civic organization and/or local government.”
