Leadership Tomorrow applications due May 15!

Leadership Tomorrow Class of 2020-2021 applications are due Friday, May 15. Brochures and applications can be downloaded at LufkinTexas.org.

The next generation of East Texas leaders can apply for Leadership Tomorrow during their junior year of high school.
“We are building them up to be great leaders here in Angelina County. Not only for their peers, but for their futures,” said Ashley Berry, Director of Leadership Programs. “We are teaching them to be leaders of the future.”

Leadership Tomorrow, hosted by the Chamber, was designed for high school, private school, charter school and home school juniors in Angelina County for the seven-month program.

Students in the program have the benefit of learning about Angelina County first-hand, exploring possible career opportunities that exist in this area, and giving back to the community through volunteer service and volunteer projects.
The class year will begin with a reception in October to welcome students and to thank their sponsors. During the following seven months, students will attend a total of five sessions that focus on social services, health care, education, quality of life, local economy, financial services and government in Angelina County. During this time, the students will also work on three community volunteer projects and close out the year with graduation in April 2021.        
“Our hope would be for the leaders that we are developing to have a desire to come back and lead Angelina County,” Berry said.
