20 Years of Leadership Classes
Thursday, 29 August 2013

August 29--  This year is the 20th edition of the Leadership Toombs-Montgomery Class used by the local Chamber of Commerce to develop community leaders for now and the future.

The 15 members of this year's class have completed their orientation and member Mike Hagan from Meadows Regional thinks the program is a good investment.

"You've always got to be thinking about where you're going to wind up tomorrow and you need to be building leaders for the future.  We already have good leadership in this community, but they get tired and age and need to take a break, so we need fresh young people with new ideas to step into their shoes," he observes.

Another class member is Assistant District Attorney Rizza O'Connor, "Being here two years I just saw how caring and generous this community was and knew this is something I wanted to dive headfirst into and I thought being in this leadership class would show me different ways for me to use my talent and apply it to different areas," she said.

Both Hagan and O'Connor are natives of Savannah and say they enjoy the good things about small town life.

"This place, compared to all the other places I have lived, has the nicest and most caring people here.  This community has embraced me and I've been really grateful for that.  That's one of the reasons I wanted to be part of the leadership program so that I can give back," O'Connor said.

The program is being chaired this year was Blake Tillery and Cindy Williams.
