Leadership Livingston selected its 10th class since inception of the program.  The class notified of their selection and held their first meet up in August.  Regular class sessions began in September. 
“The class of 2022 has had the opportunity to get together and is enthusiastic about the coming year.  We all know if we wait for the perfect to get moving, in today’s world, we may be waiting a long time.  Never has leadership development been more important than now.  We heard from graduates following the hurricane, and they mentioned the connections and contacts they made greatly helped them to navigate the post storm problems.  We could not be more proud to know this program has made such a difference in getting our communities back on track.   We look forward to our Class of 2022 having the same experience.”
The 25 participants learned about their classmates and received an overview of the program, including community service projects they will select and complete in teams.
