Leadership Johnson County is a program whose goal is to build more effective leaders for Johnson County for a better, positive future.

The current class, which graduated Tuesday evening, had their final session the same day, which featured a group session with the media in Johnson County, including Jennifer Burden with the Buffalo Bulletin, Marianne Knapp with the Kaycee Voice, Devon Banister with Big Horn Mountain Radio, and Aaron Palmer with Sheridan Media.

Ashlea Bassett, Services Specialist with Sheridan College in Johnson County, and Coordinator of the Leadership Johnson County class, said the 10-month class has sessions each month, and explains what the future leaders of Johnson County learn.

According to the SCJC website, the program builds empowerment through personal growth in leadership, volunteerism, risk-taking, and knowledge. The curriculum includes both a community-oriented educational component and a personal leadership skill component.

Leadership Johnson County is currently taking applications for their 5th class which will begin in January.

Bassett explains how to register for the new class.
