Corry Regional Leadership

Hone your leadership skills.

Recognizing the need to increase the region’s leadership capacity, the Corry Higher Education Council in 2002 launched “Corry Regional Leadership.” The seven-month program runs on alternating Wednesday mornings from mid-September through early April, and is aimed at developing both business and personal leadership skills.

Asset discovery is designed to help participants better understand the area in which they are operating, with presentations about local economic development, history and demographics, the local health-care delivery system, public education, and more.

Seven classes totaling 100 graduates have experienced Corry Regional Leadership to date, including participation from Union City, Spartansburg, and other nearby communities. The program does not run every year – rather, it runs in those years when a cohort of participants is identified and assembled.

The 2016-17 class of Corry Regional Leadership is discovering much about themselves and others!
