Local Leaders Attend Community Leadership Training

Recently, area residents attended a community and professional development training in Greenville,
MS, on August 2 & 3 at the Greenville Higher Education Center. Small Towns, Big Impact: Community Leadership Institute was an invitation only event sponsored by Hope Enterprise Corporation & Hope Credit Union in partnership and training provided by NeighborWorks America Training Institute. This partnership with Hope has been a work in progress and ongoing project to provide training and assess needs throughout the community.

 Mayor Hill attended a week long training session in the Fall of 2017 in Philadelphia, PA. Mayor Hill was honored for the City of Louisville to be selected for this program and the opportunity to have a place-based curriculum offering in Mississippi to host a group of leaders representing a wide array of interest in Winston County. 

The training consisted of community development through involvement and putting plans into action. As a result, the group looks forward to announcing support of a community project very soon and is grateful to Hope Enterprise for the opportunities provided.

Those attending were Carnette Hudson, Ada Woodward, Carolyn Hampton, Barbra Eichelberger, Mike Dowd, Mayor Will Hill, & Lacey Vowell.
