Leadership program is worth it
Even for a person who was born and raised in Fluvanna, and now is raising her kids here, the bus tour put on by the Fluvanna Leadership Development Program was a real eye-opener. I saw things I had never noticed before in Fluvanna – Rosenwald schools, the Old Slave Chapel, countless businesses and churches, and on and on. One of the best parts of the tour was meeting my classmates – some of whom have become friends for life – who I never would have met otherwise.

And that was just the beginning of the leadership program. I learned more about how the county works, who does what and why, and what I can do to affect it – or just help make things better – than I had learned in decades of living here.

So I’m telling my friends to look into the Fluvanna Leadership Development Program. It’s a bit of a commitment, especially for a busy mom, but it’s worth it. You can get more information, and even sign up, at www.fluvannaleadership.com.
