HNN Staff

Ashland, Kentucky  (HNN) -- Leadership Tri-State (LTS), a non-profit community educational organization dedicated to developing the talents of the region’s current and future leaders, is now accepting applications for the organization’s next session of classes that will begin in April 2011.

 Leadership Tri-State’s program consists of eight monthly sessions from April through November.  Each session is organized around a theme and is explored through speakers, discussions, field trips and other activities.  Themes explored include government, law and justice, media, history, tourism, natural resources and agriculture.  Holding sessions at different locations throughout the Tri-State is a key component of the program.

 “This program is beneficial to current and aspiring business leaders in a number of ways.  They learn more about our wonderful region and its resources.  They have the opportunity to develop meaningful, lasting relationships with other participants in their class,” says Sharon Walker, Leadership Tri-State executive director.

 “Leadership Tri-State is a great tool for promoting the surrounding communities of Ironton, Ashland and Huntington as one area.  The river is just a river and what is good for one of these cities is good for all of them,” says Dianne Clement, a Leadership Tri-State graduate.

 Leadership Tri-State participants are selected from southern Ohio, eastern Kentucky and western West Virginia.  Each participant must be dedicated to enthusiastic participation in the program and have a record of community involvement. 

 Once accepted into the program, each participant is billed a tuition fee of $695.  The fee covers program costs as well as meal expenses for all eight sessions.

 To receive an application, please contact Sharon Walker, Executive Director, at the Leadership Tri-State office by calling 606-324-1787 or by email at lsts_rcchc@windstream.net.  Applications must be received by March 19, 2011.
