Class of 2023 Announcement

With its 35th class, the Leadership Clarksville program continues its tradition of education, inclusion and development. By providing proven community leaders an opportunity to see deep into many aspects of life in Clarksville and Montgomery County, the program seeks to draw our residents closer while continuing to recognize its potential for growth.

“Leadership Clarksville serves our local business, civic, nonprofit and religious organizations with an opportunity for their leaders to gain a deeper understanding of our community while developing lifelong relationships with their classmates and alumni,” said Rich Holladay, executive director. “We meet monthly over the course of the year in educational sessions at varying locations hosted by a wide variety of local leaders. The participants will find many chances to increase their knowledge and impact, both now and in the future.”

Graduates emerge from the program better prepared and more knowledgeable about our community and its benefits as well as needs, Holladay said.

At the annual board meeting in June, Judge Joel Wallace assumed the presidency and Betty Burchett became vice president. O’Neal Wiggins became secretary-treasurer.
