The class began in September with a retreat to Henry Horton State Park and now meets once monthly to enjoy fun-filled days learning about Lincoln County. Thus far, the class has participated in Agriculture Day, History Day, Local Government Day, Social Services Day and Education Day. The class is set to graduate on May 18.
Class members are Sandra Arnold, Andrea Brewer, Donald Bukar, Katie Burk, Troy Doud, Violet Harry, Addie Hodges, Rickey Honey, Kathy Hobson, Angela Howell, Dennis Jackson, Kristi Jean, Jason Jones, Angie Kimbrough, Kelly Mooney, Tommy Pirtle, Mary Beth Seals and Debbie Woodward.
Requirements for completion of Lincoln Leadership also include a class project. This year the class has chosen to help the local Animal Shelter. They are in the process of building a sign for the shelter. This will help for identification purposes when residents are looking for the Animal Shelter. There will also be some interior remodeling that will take place, as well.
“This class has been a great one. Everyone has been eager to participate, and they are doing a wonderful job of working together,” said Robert Strope, president of the Lincoln Leadership Board of Directors.
The class will hold a roadblock on Saturday, March 16, as a fundraiser for the Animal Shelter. The support of the community is greatly appreciated.
