Leadership McKean is an exclusive professional opportunity designed for those who want to help facilitate a path to a brighter future for McKean County residents. Sessions are held monthly between October through June. Locations of sessions vary and are held throughout McKean County.

Aimed at training and nurturing emerging leaders from throughout the county, this non-profit program is developed through collaboration among professionals engaged in leadership in business and industry, education, and human services.

The mission of Leadership McKean is to develop informed and involved leaders through a comprehensive county-wide development program. The learning objectives of this session include identifying resources that support early childhood education, summarize the K-12 education system’s programs and administrative structure, and to describe the region’s post-secondary education system.

During their session at the SHCTC, the group had the opportunity to take a tour throughout the SHCTC and the ten different shops available. There were several panels which provided discussion throughout the day. These panels included an Early Learning Panel, K-12 Panel with Administration and School Board Officials, A panel of students from each of the shops then were available to answer questions relating to their individual shops, future goals, and other questions, and finally there was a Post-Secondary Education Panel.

The Culinary Department provided refreshments to the group throughout the day as they held panel discussions. A decadent lunch was provided and served by the Culinary students and Chef Paul Farmelo.
