Leadership Rutherford (LR) welcomed 40 members to the upcoming class of 2022. The announcement comes after the program was forced to take a year’s hiatus due to COVID-19.
“While our world has changed, the need for leadership has not,” said Stephanie Brackman, executive director of Leadership Rutherford. “Leadership Rutherford strives to shape the vibrancy of our community through the continuation of leadership development, and I have no doubt that the new class will continue to represent our mission.”
Leadership Rutherford is a personal development program designed to motivate participants to develop and enhance the quality of their leadership in addressing pertinent community needs.
Under the direction of the Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce, LR began its first program in 1985. The program was designed to sustain and supplement the high quality of local leadership which continues to be the key ingredient in making Rutherford County the outstanding community that it is today.
