EDINBURG, TX – The Leadership Edinburg steering committee announced they are taking applications for its XXXII Class.
In spite of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the annual leadership program will continue to train emerging leaders virtually and will be implementing safety protocols during its session in accordance with local health and public official recommendations.
Since the program’s conception thirty years ago, 500 people have participated in the professional development and community learning program, “This program is beneficial for emerging leaders as it gives them the opportunity to practice their leadership skills and brush up on different community topics that include history, education, healthcare, politics, and quality of life,” said Ronnie Larralde, Executive Director of the Edinburg Chamber.
The purpose of the 9-month program is to set a goal in which all class members willingly develop and complete a project that helps give back to the community, “Former classes have built parks, painted educational murals, issued scholarships and erected marquees. Last year’s class is getting ready to break ground with the city of Edinburg on a sign that will make our city proud,” said Larralde.
