Brett Reynolds joins next class of Leadership Kentucky
by Mandy Hicks
Partner Brett Reynolds will be participating in the 2013 class of Leadership Kentucky. This worthwhile state leadership program takes participants all around Kentucky, to participate in challenging programs developed for leaders and emerging leaders in Kentucky and introducing them to the many aspects of life in the Commonwealth.
The class will travel across Kentucky this year for seven monthly sessions (May through November) connecting and inspiring leaders and broadening the perspectives of each participant. From their opening retreat at Jabez, to Frankfort, Louisville, Georgetown, Henderson, Eddyville, Hopkinsville/Fort Campbell and Pikeville, they will go on an incredible journey to see and learn about Kentucky.
Locations for class sessions vary from year to year. Topics covered during this year’s sessions will be leadership, Kentucky history, education, healthcare, government, energy, military, economic development, media, natural resources and environment, law and justice, regionalism and global issues. Arts, culture and tourism are included in each session by our host communities and the optional activities offered.
