OTC employees participate in
Leadership Bulloch project
Two Ogeechee Technical College instructors are members of the Leadership Bulloch class of 2010. Terry Hand (above left) and John Witherington participated in Leadership Bulloch’s project to bring an old-fashioned political “Stump Meeting” to the Downtown Statesboro Farmers’ Market on October 9. Numerous local and statewide political candidates were on hand to speak to a large crowd of citizens who were present at the Market.
Commenting on the current group of Leadership Bulloch members, Statesboro-Bulloch Chamber of Commerce President, Peggy Chapman, said, “This is a great class! They have really raised the bar for classes to come. The next group will have to work very hard to be more successful than this current group.” Leadership Bulloch is sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce and is designed to develop community leaders by providing various programs, training classes, and experiences.
Ogeechee Tech has numerous alumni of the Leadership Bulloch program, and some have even participated in Leadership Southeast Georgia, and Leadership Georgia. The Stump Meeting was praised as a great success by the candidates who attended. Senator Jack Hill stated, “This is a great way for people to get to hear candidates in person, and for candidates to have an opportunity to meet their constituents face to face.”
