Leadership Tangipahoa seeks out individuals who are interested in developing their skills as leaders, increasing their knowledge of our community, and learning what they can do to actively participate in community affairs. The purpose of Leadership Tangipahoa is to provide a forum for which students can attend and participate in workshops sponsored by community leaders and organizations to educate and develop their potential for community service.
The Leadership Tangipahoa program is based on the fundamentals of networking. This year-long commitment, seeks to locate emerging leaders in the community, assist with their development, and position them to better serve themselves, their employers, and their community. Leadership Tangipahoa is a stepping stone for those individuals which intend to live, work, and play in Tangipahoa Parish for life.
Participants in the Leadership Tangipahoa program hail from throughout Tangipahoa Parish. The mix of ages and occupations create and excellent environment for education. “The success of each class depends heavily on the involvement of the students. The more diverse the class, the more effective discussions are.” says Emily McKneely, Leadership Tangipahoa Chairman.
