Leadership Clinton underway with the 35th class


The 35th Clinton Leadership Class is underway. The first day of the class of 23 took place on Friday and was led by Lisa Nack, who has helped the opening retreat for more than a decade.

This is the second course led by Jonathan McKay, Program Director of the Clinton County Leadership Institute.

There are 20 participants in this year’s class from across the county.

The day took place at the Clinton County Fairgrounds with all kinds of leadership exercises and learning opportunities.

From name games to personal bests, leadership skills have all been incorporated into what are known as the 5 Leadership Practices: Modeling the Way, Inspiring a Shared Vision, Challenging the Process, Empowering Others and Encouraging the heart.

The day ended with Share my Artifact, a deeply personal exercise where each participant shares what is most important to them and explains why. Photo albums, steel drums, a family Bible and family hunting licenses are just a few of the items brought.

Attendees enjoyed food from Shoelaces Catering and Donatos Pizza, with sponsorship from Jack Powell and Mark Bush.
