With the completion of this year’s class, the alumni count now totals 515.
Members of the Leadership Cherokee Class of 2013 selected two of their peers to receive special annual recognitions.
The Cristal Stancil Leadership Award honoree was Heath Tippens, Cherokee Office of Economic Development. The Bob Frongillo Magic Spark Plug Award was presented to Carolyn Hall with Scentsy/Wickfree Candles.
The Leadership Cherokee program kicks off with a retreat where the group participates in both indoor and outdoor team building exercises that enabled them to learn not only about each other, but themselves through a look at personality types and communication styles, said Pam Carnes, president of the Chamber.
“Over the course of the nine month period, Leadership Cherokee exposes the group of existing and emerging leaders to a broad range of sessions that focus on topics such as economic development, infrastructure, government, justice, education, recreation, tourism, public safety, healthcare and social/human services,” Carnes said.
The nomination deadline for the Leadership Cherokee Class of 2014 is Tuesday.
