First Leadership Potter County Class To Graduate On December 12, 2008

Year Long Leadership Potter County Class

On hand for a recent Leadership Potter County Class were, from left, Mike Pearson, former Army War College instructor; Mike Hall; Dan Hawbaker, President and CEO of Glenn O. Hawbaker Inc.; and Mitch DeLong, Program Facilitator and Leadership Potter County Steering Committee Member

Seventeen men and women, ranging in age from teens to 70-plus, will emerge from a yearlong education odyssey ready to take leadership roles in government, community and business organizations.

They’re the first class of graduates for “Leadership Potter County,” a leadership development program organized by the Potter County Education Council and supported by several cooperative sponsors.

Starting last January and concluding with a graduation ceremony on Dec. 12, the students have been exposed to a wide variety of educational experiences, from meetings with government leaders and experts in several fields, to presentations by local business operators, educators and non-profit organizations.

Students heard from seasoned leaders such as Mike Pearson, a retired U.S. Army Colonel and former instructor at the Army War College. He shared insights on differences between the generations and helped the class members complete profiles to gain insight into their personality characteristics and tendencies.

Dan Hawbaker, President and CEO of Glenn O. Hawbaker Inc., one of Pennsylvania’s premier heavy construction companies, shared his view on Pennsylvania’s economy and various business topics, including leadership development.

Other classes during the year offered students the chance to participate in panel discussions with leaders of news media and communications, school administration and Penn State Cooperative Extension.

The November class focused on emergency services, culminating with an Incident Command System exercise facilitated by Lonnie Bunch and Trish Galeotti from Charles Cole Memorial Hospital.

Classes during the year allowed each student to develop a better understanding of business operations, volunteerism, local government, tourism, communications, public safety and other aspects of a vibrant community.

Organizers of Leadership Potter County expressed their appreciation to these sponsors: Buckler Transport, Level 3 Communications, Glenn O. Hawbaker Inc, Food Matrix, Charles Cole Memorial Hospital, First Citizens National Bank, Citizens Trust Company, First National Bank of Port Allegany, Buchanan Brothers Pharmacy, Twin Tier Linen Service, Close’s Lumber, Hauber’s Jewelry Store, Eulalia Lodge No. 342, Potter County Education Council and Penn State Cooperative Extension.

Plans are in place for the 2009 Leadership Potter County class. Details are available online at pottercountyedcouncil.org, or by calling Deanna Sherman at 435-9490.
