"The purpose of this organization shall be to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in the students of secondary schools."
Leadership Murray County is a non-profit organization created in 2003 as a result of an OSU community development grant.
Citizens in Murray County nominate individuals who have exhibited qualities and the potential to become leaders in the county.
Applications are sent to the nominated individuals. After receiving the applications, the committee selects that year's class.
The class meets monthly from October through May with graduation at the end of the program. Each class is designed to teach, develop, and encourage leaders in the county and develop team-work within the class.
