Leadership Wayne County is designed to create leaders dedicated to the betterment of the community through service. Through monthly meetings, the members of each “class” are exposed to different aspects of Wayne County including local government, history, agri-business, education, business and industry, and arts and leisure.
Each class also completes a community service project. This year’s class established a Wayne County Heritage Geotrail to promote historical awareness. Fifty geocaches were located around the county, including one on the WCC campus. Explorers who visit all of the geocache locations in the county can claim a coin. More information on how to get started can be found at www.waynemuseum.org.
