Jay Womack, a Geauga County Farm Bureau Trustee, is the most recent Farm Bureau leader to graduate from Leadership Geauga. According to Melanie Scanlon, the executive director, “Jay always represented the Farm Bureau with professionalism and was a wonderful class member. He even saved our group one day when our bus driver had some mechanical issues.” Melanie explained that having someone in the class who is in agriculture is great for both of our organizations. Thank you Jay, for representing Farm Bureau so well!
Leadership Geauga is an adult leadership program designed to develop a community of well-informed individuals through first-hand educational experiences. The program enrolls participants who have a commitment to the Geauga County community and who are interested in assuming greater responsibility for the future leadership of the county. Participants dedicate one full day a month for 10 months (September-June) to these educational activities. By exposing participants to various aspects of community life, Leadership Geauga calls on future leaders to imagine real-world solutions to the challenges in the county.
