- "Above and beyond what I expected...The opportunity to meet people and learn about places in Jefferson City that I probably wouldn't have otherwise. Fantastic friendships and connections."
- "Making 29 new friends and contacts, getting involved in volunteer opportunities, learning about Jefferson City, going places I've never been."
- "Hands on, interactive sessions; meeting employees, students, or people involved with whatever area we were observing. This was a wonderful experience too full of "bests" to abridge in this small space!"
- "There are so many highlights from Leadership but I really enjoyed getting to do things that I would have never had a chance to do without this program. Examples would be eating lunch at the Governor's Mansion, sitting in the Supreme Court chairs, or going to the top of the Capitol. Even though I have lived in Jefferson City my whole life. I don't think I would ever had a chance to experience these things in our community. I now just feel much more knowledgeable about our community and have Leadership to thank. I really enjoyed my classmates with our class being such a unique and diverse group of people. Everyone had different passions and interests in our community and it was neat to see other people's views."
