Leadership Programs

In 1990 a major local bank approached the college with an idea for celebrating, with a gift of some enduring significance, their 100th anniversary. The Highland Leadership Institute was created to develop and sustain a network of local leaders. Alan Wenzel, a Speech Communicator faculty member was appointed director, and in 1991, the first class was named. Each year since then, the Leadership Institute has offered from 20 to 40 community leaders a program of leadership skill building and community awareness.
