L.E.A.D. Adair County taking applications for 2009-10 class

By Lee Ann Jessee

L.E.A.D. Adar County is now accepting applications for the 2009-2010 class.

Applications are accepted for individuals 18 and up and there is no limit on class size.

Since the first class graduated from Brushy Fork Institute at Berea College in 2004, 41 Adair Countians have completed the training to become a part of L.E.A.D. Adair County. Ask any one of them about their experience, and, if their's is similar to mine, it was great.

Many graduates will tell you that L.E.A.D. Adair County has even marked a major turning point in their lives. We like to think L.E.A.D. Adair County is making a very positive impact on our community.
