“Leadership Corsicana was an experience that I will never forget! I learned so much about my town that I wouldn't have otherwise known. I had the chance to make some great friendships and network with a great group of people. I feel that I grew as a person and a leader throughout this experience.” Heather Miller, Corsicana Daily Sun, Class of 2017
The Leadership Corsicana 2022-2023 experience has been phenomenal. As a recently arrived resident of Corsicana & Navarro County, it has been a wonderful education into what is available locally and how various entities function so as to know how to obtain the countless connections needed to thrive locally. I have grown socially, emotionally, as a leader and in business connections. Some examples regarding these last are: Because of connections I have made through Leadership Corsicana, I have been able to get sponsors and presenters for a youth at risk program put on at my non profit work; have been able to offer undesignated funds to other nonprofits in town from my other business; have been invited to join a local women's group which will further help both of my employments and my personal acclimating into the city; have had other presenters come to share with the underserved community I work with. Etc. Thank you to the Chamber, to Leslie and to Michelle for a great experience with this class.

The connections from the tours and the classmates are worth the investment.” – Russ Montfort, First State Bank, Class of 2017

Our class was full of great people that all share a love for the town of Corsicana, and I was fortunate to be classmates with them. We learned many things about our community that I feel will make us better leaders for many years to come." -Hayden Jones, Community National Bank & Trust of Texas, Class of 2018
