Leadership Griffin-Spalding is underway, hosting its class retreat on September 9. Twenty-five individuals have committed themselves to the 10-month program to become better leaders in Griffin-Spalding County by seeing key aspects of community development first-hand. During the program, participants are equipped with resources that will aid their work, build their community and enrich the lives of their families.
“Everything rises and falls on leadership. This program is designed to add value to our community by increasing the quality leadership who in turn will make it better,” said Dr. Randall Peters, president of Southern Crescent Technical College and chair of the Leadership Griffin-Spalding Board of Directors.
Under the direction of the Griffin-Spalding Chamber of Commerce and the Griffin-Spalding Archway Partnership, participants in Leadership Griffin-Spalding benefit from getting to know one another and from the exchange of ideas and experiences.
