Leadership Garrett CountyGarrett College Continuing Education & Workforce Development is accepting applications for the next class of future leaders.
 
Entering its fourth year, Leadership Garrett County is scheduled to begin September 19th.
 
Although Leadership Garrett County is open to anyone, organizers for this year’s class are seeking individuals of the community and surrounding area that demonstrate potential qualities and aptitude among future leaders.
 
The program is the result of a cooperative partnership between Garrett College and the Garrett County Department of Economic Development.
 
The ultimate goal of the program is for graduates to emerge as more informed, connected and effective managers, leaders and citizens, to ensure a bright future for Garrett County as the next generation of leaders in the county.
 
“Leadership Garrett County is dedicated to providing positive change by creating a network of future leaders that will impact the community in which they live, work and play,” said Jodi McClintock, director of the program and business solutions at Garrett College.
 
The first session will begin September 19th. The class will meet once a month, with the exception of December. The program will conclude in April.
 
As in the past, this year’s class will have the opportunity to learn from a variety of guest speakers and presenters throughout the duration of the program. In addition to leadership programming content, the class will participate in on-site visits with various businesses within the Garrett County community. Participants will gain first-hand knowledge of the many industries in the county, including education, government, manufacturing and tourism.
 
Any organization wishing to sponsor an employee, or any individual wishing to apply, or inquire about a scholarship for the program should contact McClintock at Garrett College, at 301-387-3084 or jodi.mcclintock@garrettcollege.edu.
