Spots still open for leadership class

Published 10:14 pm Tuesday, June 14, 2016

There’s still time for anyone that wants to take part in the upcoming class of Selma-Dallas County Leadership.

Callie Nelson, who is currently serving as the program’s interim director, said she has only received 11 applications thus far.

The program has a goal to include between 20-25 members for each class.

We’re confident the class will fill up and frankly we’d be shocked if it didn’t. There’s always a clamoring for more positive programs in our community, especially classes like this one that brings professionals from all parts of the city together.

Leadership is the rare chance to see behind the scenes of the industries, businesses and government in Selma and Dallas County.

It’s an opportunity for people that have never met to come together and work toward one common goal — uniting Selma and moving the city forward into the future.

This isn’t the first time we’ve written about leadership, but we hope it’ll be the last time we have to encourage others to join the program.

The program only meets once a month and runs from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., so it isn’t any more time consuming than a normal workday. For more information on the class, contact Nelson at (334) 875-3200.
