The 30th class of Leadership Coshocton County was welcomed by Executive Director Betsy Gosnell, thanking alumni and supporters of the program for their continued involvement. Mindy Fehrman, secretary of the advisory board and LCC Class of 2000, welcomed the class on behalf of the leadership advisory board and the Coshocton Foundation.

Members of the Leadership Coshocton County Class of 2020 are: Christy Baylor, Coshocton City Schools; Brianna Celeschi, McWane Ductile; Jennifer Fry, Coshocton County Department of Job and Family Services; Sydney Hadley, McWane Ductile; David Marrison, The Ohio State University, Coshocton County Extension; Christopher Menapace, Village of West Lafayette; Robert L.

The program year will begin with an opening retreat on Sunday, Sept. 13, at Salt Fork Lodge and Conference Center, facilitated by Emily Marrison and Jenny Strickler, of the Ohio State University Extension, Coshocton County; and Mark Woods, Anazao Partners.

Leadership Coshocton County is a program of the Coshocton Foundation and receives funds from the Willard S. and Helen F. Breon Discretionary Fund; the McWane Ductile community grant and individual contributions. This nine-month leadership development program meets monthly with sessions designed to build upon the lessons introduced at opening retreat by learning about and visiting historical sites, businesses, government, non-profit and social service agencies in Coshocton County. Due to the covid-19 pandemic, some program days may be held virtually, with online sessions held via Zoom depending on severity of the disease locally based on recommendations by ODH. In addition, members gain leadership skills through a nationally recognized online leadership curriculum, Positive Leadership.  Chapter readings covering leadership capacities enhance the experiential learning of the monthly program days, allowing each member to further their leadership growth.

The program year ends in May with a closing session and graduation in which participants will revisit the capacities learned through Positive Leadership.

Deadline to apply for the class of 2022 is June 1, 2021. For more information, contact Gosnell at [email protected].
