"When you think of 18 or so members in a class times 20 years, you've got quite a group of people who have been prepared for leadership in our community and who are actively working in leadership positions in our community now," Chamber President Bill Mitchell said.

Leadership Toombs-Montgomery started in 1994 and was shepherded the first three years by Lynette and Jack Dell of Vidalia.

"It's about young people learning what needs to be done in the community, what we've got, where we need to make progress and doing something about it.  We've certainly got that in Toombs and Montgomery counties," Jack Dell observed.
