MCBL & MCEDA Announce the 2017-18 Madison County Youth Leadership Class

Oct 04, 2017


Jan Collins, Executive Director of the Madison County Business League and Foundation (MCBL&F), announced today that the Youth Leadership class for the 2017-2018 school year has been chosen. “Based on their activity sheets, this class is the most outstanding by far,” said Collins. “The schools have selected the best and brightest. They are extremely academic, involved in sports, leadership, music, community service and church. They are all very well rounded.”

The mission of the program is to inspire and educate area students about the variety of leading businesses which offer excellent career opportunities in Madison County. The students will also learn about local, county and state governments as well as Madison County’s quality of life. Several motivational keynote speakers and successful business leaders will share character and leadership skills designed to develop future leaders for Madison County.

The program involves three days: Economic Development Career Day, Lifestyles Day and Government Day. The class will be invited guests to the annual VISIONS Celebration luncheon on October 17th, as well as the 2018 League & Legislature luncheon in February 28, 2018. The MCBL&F will present students completing all three days of the program with a scholarship.

A privately funded 501 © 6 non-profit economic development stakeholder and support organization, the purpose of the Madison County Business League & Foundation is to act in partnership with the Madison County Economic Development Authority to provide the County a unique opportunity to unite the public and private sectors; thereby, encouraging proper planning for future growth and development.
