Leadership Jefferson City
Testimonials from Alumni
"I am beyond thrilled that I was chosen to participate in Leadership Jefferson City 2018! As a transplant to the Jefferson City community, I learned so many amazing things about our community. I also have made some of the greatest friendships/connections with fellow classmates. The knowledge you gain about your community is priceless. It was such a great experience, I would recommend it to any individual that aspires to be a part of their community or if you just wish to learn more about your community."
Dr. Brandon Johns, Align Chiropractic Clinic - Leadership Jefferson City Class Representative 2018
“What Leadership Jefferson City does is take 30 strangers to place them in an environment that fosters teamwork, accountability, volunteerism, and communication. This forces each of us to step outside some of our comfort zones and grow together as a group or “Class”. By the end of the program, we all have learned together and improved or gotten better in some area of our personal and/or professional life. With that grow together as a class it makes us and every other class the “Best Class Ever” in our own unique ways.”

"My positive experience with Leadership Jefferson City has carried well beyond the few months LJC has scheduled. The friendships, both professionally and personally, have been invaluable to my professional successes. Given the diverse curriculum, I found myself inside interesting places I may have never gone, speaking with amazing people who play an integral role in JC’s health and history. I can’t say enough about this fantastic program and will continue to encourage participation to both young and seasoned professionals. If I could, I would do it all over again…BEST CLASS 2015!!!"
