Leadership Montgomery Is Back!
Committed to the advancement of Montgomery County through the development of its most important resource: its leaders.
Leadership Montgomery is a program of discovery committed to the advancement of Montgomery County through the development of its most important resource: its leaders. Through a series of day-long "adventures", participants will explore various facets of Montgomery County operations. They will meet the people behind the operations and learn how each contributes to the success of the county. The program provides many opportunities for networking and broadening participants' scope of knowledge, support, and influence. Upon completion, Leadership Montgomery participants will have enriched their experience as leaders, expanded their knowledge of Montgomery County and its various assets, and established professional affiliations that can assist them in their role as leaders in Montgomery County.

Leadership Montgomery seeks men and women who have achieved or are working to achieve leadership positions within our community or in their profession. Individuals may choose to enroll themselves or may be sponsored by an employer. Some scholarships are available to cover partial costs for the program.

The cost of the program is $175 and includes:
  • Orientation
  • Seven, day-long leadership sessions
  • Transportation
  • Lunch on session days
  • Graduation ceremony & reception

Leadership Montgomery participants will meet once a month beginning in September with an orientation held at Montgomery Community College.

Most day-long sessions run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and transportation is provided to each destination from a central meeting point.

Pottery Student Represents MCC at Art Exhibition
The MCC Pottery program is pleased to share that student Hayat Zerhoudi was chosen to represent Montgomery Community College in the 2021 Student Art Exhibition hosted by Fayetteville Technical Community College.

Hayat has been a pleasure to have in the program. She has been working hard to perfect her lidded forms and we think she nailed it with this lidded server. Lightweight, thoughtfully placed handles, excellent lid fit, and clean glaze application. This full-bellied server will be the shining star at Hayat's next family gathering.
