“Leadership Midlothian is a wonderful tool where a person continues to learn about themselves, their leadership skills, and the community.  It is also a great networking opportunity where a person can make business contacts and meet lifelong friends.  Leadership Midlothian will unveil characteristic traits you are unaware of while learning and experiencing new things.” – Johnna Jones, senior administrative assistant at Texas Industries Midlothian Cement (Class of 2006)

“Leadership Midlothian inspired me to be an active participant in my community.  I learned that giving back to the community does not have to be giving a monetary donation….but giving from the heart.  The time I invested in this course was time well spent.  I encourage anyone to experience this wonderful program as it continues every year proving that this is “where leadership grows.” – Marilyn Jones, board member of CASA of Ellis County, Ellis County SPCA, Manna House, and resident of Midlothian (Class of 2008)

“Leadership Midlothian was a wonderful experience that I enjoyed thoroughly.  I enjoyed meeting other professionals and getting to know more about our community and our county.  I was exposed to many resources that I did not even know existed and were available.  I would highly recommend that any individual attend that has the chance.  I have made some lifelong friends and acquaintances.” – Shannon Minter, buyer at Gerdau (Class of 2009)

“It was both an honor and a privilege to participate in Leadership Midlothian.  I learned a great deal about the wonderful businesses and community programs in Midlothian and Ellis County. . . but it was the incredible people that we met and got to know through this year were the real jewels in the process.  I have made some great connections and feel I am more prepared to serve in our great Southern Star Community!” – Jamie Greene,  Regional Executive Director, Big Brothers Big Sisters (Class of 2011)
