07/13/12 Leadership Marshall County is accepting applications for Class XVIII.  Applications are due on July 30, 2012. Leadership Marshall County is a nine month program designed to inform and support current and future leaders of Marshall County.  This program identifies, develops and inspires community leaders through education and skills development, involving sessions taught by currently established leaders in Marshall County government, agriculture, education, economic development, arts, tourism, health and human services and criminal justice.

Over 260 Marshall County leaders have participated in the program since its inception in 1995.

Through exposure to existing leadership and civic organization and in-depth exchanges on relevant issues, a key benefit of the program is the improvement of communication networks within both the public and private sectors of Marshall County. The program fosters a commitment to community service and engages both those new to the community and lifelong residents.

“Even though I live and work in Marshall County, I gained new insight . . . LMC has further developed some innovative and enthusiastic leaders with fresh and creative ideas. Marshall County has many opportunities to become involved and LMC gave us the exposure to those opportunities,” said Kim Bates Class of XVI.

Individuals interested in attending Leadership Marshall County may contact the Marshall County Community Foundation office at 574.935.5159 or visit the website at www.marshallcountylmc.org  or www.marshallcountycf.org for an application.
