Chamber Leadership Institute

For several years now the Kirksville Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Institute has been helping to build competent and creative leaders out of local citizens. This year’s program will come to an end in October, and participants Keith Jackson and Amy Crawford stopped by our Area Scene to talk about what the Institute does. Along with learning and discussing the ins and outs of life in the area participants also volunteer for the chamber during the program, and work together to plan and execute a group project. This year’s project will assist in raising money and completing work for the FLATS trail system, a planned bike trail that will ultimately connect Thousand Hills State Park with Kirksville.
