Thirty years ago, Leadership Augusta was founded to encourage, develop and provide community leadership. It's goals were to identify and educate leaders, to recognize community needs and to promote and facilitate community projects.
Over the years, this organization has done that and more. An average of 30 people are chosen each year to participate in a yearlong, in-depth look at all aspects of our community and its issues -- from health care, to education, to law-enforcement, to name a few.
On Saturday, all alumni are going to gather for a special dinner to celebrate 30 years of Leadership Augusta, its legacy and its impact on the metro Augusta area. We encourage all alumni to make an effort to attend this event.
We live in a wonderful community blessed with outstanding leaders, thanks to Leadership Augusta. Here's hoping for another 30 terrific years.
