We are leaders.
Leadership Saline County is group of professionals from varying industries who are dedicated to facilitating the growth of Saline County.
To build off of Saline County’s past, embrace our present, and welcome the possibilities of our future; to improve the lives of every member of our community while focusing on forming relationship and maintaining integrity.
We have made a commitment to cultivate leadership in Saline County.
Classes are spread out over 18 weeks and include meetings held every other week where “students” will discover a key component of our community. Each class plans and executes a class project from start to finish that benefits a local non-profit as well as raising funds for the Leadership Saline County Scholarship that awards four high school seniors $500.
During the course, classmates will:
Learn more about your county.
Connect with others.
Lead your community.
