The current class of the Leadership Highland program began in August of 2018 with a retreat at Rocky Fork State Park. Since August, the class has met monthly for a series of hands-on workshops and tours of local and regional businesses. Earlier in May, the participants completed their class project by collecting donations for the Bright Local Schools D.A.R.E. program graduation celebration. Sponsors of the class project included Weastec, Inc., Merchants National Bank, First State Bank, Southern State Community College, Walmart Subway, Edward Jones (Mat Greene), Ohio Corn and Wheat Growers Association, and Ohio State University Extension.

The graduation program will include a brief presentation by the participants and light refreshments. To RSVP or for more information about the next class of Leadership Highland, contact the Ohio State University Extension Office in Highland County at 937-393-1918 or via email at beam.49@osu.edu.
