Jefferson County Leadership Academy Graduation

It has been my honor and pleasure to be an active co-facilitator and coach with Mark Leyba at the Jefferson County Leadership Academy this year. We had an action-packed year of leadership training, working on Action Teams, mentoring, and professional growth.  A great group of committed public servants threw themselves wholeheartedly into the leadership growth path. They worked hard to learn leadership fundamentals and truly look at themselves, their strengths, and their gaps as individuals.  I want to congratulate all the program’s graduates who celebrated their graduation with a beautiful and meaningful potlatch and formal ceremony on Wednesday, December 19, 2018. It’s been a pleasure getting to know you, and best of luck in your leadership journey!  I look forward to watching each of you grow as a leader in your community.
