The curriculum focuses on the theory, practice and tools for effective leadership and their application to the cultural, economic, political and social dynamics of Stephenville. A series of nine full-day sessions offer learning opportunities and challenge participants to become actively involved in building a better tomorrow for Stephenville.
Each class is required to work together on a project that benefits the community. The Class of 2015 has chosen to serve as an advisory team to the City of Stephenville to collaborate, advocate, resource, and enable the construction of a multipurpose facility that builds community relationships in Erath County and beyond. The team’s mission is to promote and advance the development, funding and construction of a multi-purpose facility for Stephenville and Erath County area residents in order to enhance the recreational, social, educational and cultural opportunities for young, and not so young.
