Thumbs up to the graduates of the 30th Leadership Jackson County Class. The men and women who made up this year’s class presented their projects to the public during a recent program at Seymour City Hall. This year’s projects tackled texting and driving by teens, honored the history behind the current City Hall building, brought local arts organizations together for collaborative marketing efforts and attempted to install a traffic signal numbering system along Tipton Street through Seymour. We urge the graudates to continue the program’s history of seeing graduates take leadership roles in all walks of life across our community.
