Leadership Big Bend Accepting Applications for Class of 2020
Enrollment is now open for Leadership Big Bend Class of 2020 and will remain open until August 16th, 2019. Leadership Big Bend combines interactive leadership training with a set of informative programs designed to help each attendee gain unique insight into our West Texas tri-county area.
The class meets once a month from September through May in one of the tri-county communities, with activities and programs planned for the entire day. Each month has a theme and involves learning from area leaders in county and local government, area business and education professionals, the art community, Sul Ross, McDonald Observatory and Park Services. A favorite session is an overnight trip “Down South” to Big Bend National Park, Terlingua, and Presidio.
Each LBB class takes responsibility for developing a group service project to benefit the tri-county area and gain experience in leadership skills. For example, the LBB class of 2018 raised funds and awarded college scholarships to high school students in Presidio, Marfa, Alpine and Ft. Davis. LBB class of 2019 performed a service project for the Visitor Center at the Big Bend National Park Headquarters in Panther Junction.
The dates for the 2019-2020 sessions are 9/26, 10/17, 11/14, 12/12, 1/24-1/25, 2/20, 3/19, 4/16 and 5/21.
