New leadership class named

GLASGOW — Members of the Glasgow-Barren County Chamber of Commerce Leadership Class were recognized during a reception Thursday night at the South Central Bank Operations Center.

Sixteen members were selected for the 2012-13 year and, according to Lead Forward Chairman, John Doyle, the members will enhance their leadership abilities and have the opportunity to take what they learn and incorporate it into their respective career fields.

“What we try and do is to attract potential leaders within the community … everything about this area … that is why we are covering such areas like agriculture, education, quality of life … with everything that affects the life and times of Barren County,” Doyle said. “Once we give them a taste of everything going on in the county, that lets them know there are other things that are going on out in the community. That’s is what we are attempting to get them to do.”

The members will have a retreat at Barren River State Park next month, an event all members must attend.

“They cannot miss the retreats or any day sessions. We want someone who is interested in being in it,” Doyle said. “We are looking for people who know what they want to gain and what they want to give back. We’re looking for people who want to be an active participant and be willing to give back to the community. We will put them through a rigorous leadership process.”

Between September and May, members will be participating in team-building exercises, learning the benefits of economic development and will make an overnight trip to Frankfort to become better acquainted with the Kentucky Legislature and Kentucky’s rich cultural heritage.
