The Board of Trustees proudly announces the 2007 Leadership Tangipahoa Class.   Representatives from across Tangipahoa Parish will enjoy 10 months of classes learning about the inner workings of the Parish.  The focus of each class will be to showcase the interrelationships of community systems.  Students will be educated on a variety of topics including, but not limited to: Economic Development, Social Systems, Parish and State Government, Tourism, and etc.

Each participant is required to secure a sponsor.  Sponsoring organizations not only support their candidates through financial means, but also in allowing each student to attend one class session per month.  Sponsorship is the foundation of Leadership Tangipahoa and is a key focus for the Board of Trustees.  We thank you for supporting this outstanding organization.
