“The world has entered an era of the most profound and challenging change in human history. Most of our children are not yet prepared for these changes, and we know it. Meanwhile, businesses are seeking employees with strong skills in communication, teamwork, analysis, technology, and organization. ‘The Leader in Me’ helps schools prepare young people to be self-motivated, flexible, and to have a strong work ethic,” Nacogdoches County Chamber President/CEO Bruce Partain said.

The benefits of The Leader in Me program are: 

  • Develops students who have the skills and self-confidence to succeed as leaders in the 21st century.

  • Decreases discipline referrals.

  • Teaches and develops character and leadership through existing core curriculum.

  • Improves academic achievement.

  • Raises levels of accountability and engagement among both parents and staff.

The luncheon serves as the Chamber’s monthly membership meeting. We urge you to attend and stay on top of what is going on at the Chamber and around town. Attendee RSVPs are required by Thursday, March 25.

Lunch is $16 at the door. All attending may enter the $50 drawing, and all Chamber members are entered in a $250 drawing, but you must be present to win. Drawings sponsored by First Bank & Trust East Texas.
