The 2013 Leadership Marion County graduates and their guests attended an outdoor graduation ceremony June 17 at the home of Teresa Huffman, Marion County economic director.
This year’s graduates are Kerry Maag, Tonya Richards, Rebecca Wingfield, all from Marion, and Dana Gayle from Florence.
The first class was organized by Trayce Warner at Morningstar Ranch for team building exercises. A class on commerce and industry, hosted by Clint Seibel, met in Hillsboro; “Ag Day” in Tampa included a visit to Wiebe Dairy in Durham; Huffman led a class day on servant leadership; and Peggy Goertzen spoke at a history class, which also included a visit to the Goessel Mennonite Heritage and Agricultural Museum.
According to Huffman, all graduates have agreed to serve on the leadership board for 2014 and a retreat is being organized to discuss the class schedule for next year.
