Editorial: Local leadership program strives to make difference

Every year for the past two decades, residents from across Johnson County have spent months learning about local history and commerce, learning and practicing leadership skills and implementing service projects that have addressed issues of local concern.

Leadership Johnson County is in its 20th year and continues training new generations of leaders, teaching people ways they can make Johnson County better.

Kate Taylor, assistant director of Leadership Johnson County, said, “It’s always important for leaders to continue to grow, whether you’re a leader in your home as a stay-at-home mom or leading an organization such as a hospital or school district. Sometimes you get so busy you don’t take that time. Leadership Johnson County is a great opportunity to do that.”
