Leadership Cumberland County Program
Applications will be accepted through Monday, August. 15 for the 2011-12 class of Leadership Cumberland County, a program of the Center for Leadership, Community and Neighborhood Development at Cumberland County College, Sherman Avenue and College Drive.
Following a one-year hiatus that was used to assess and expand the program, it is entering its 11th year. The nine-month program gives established and new and emerging leaders a broad understanding of public issues, civic challenges and the community's role in solving problems, according to Thomas Isekenegbe, college president and a 2002 graduate of the program.
