Leadership Randolph celebrates 34 years of nuturing local leaders

Since its inception in 1988 by the Asheboro/Randolph Chamber of Commerce, Leadership Randolph has stood at the forefront of cultivating community-minded leaders in Randolph County. This year, the program celebrates its 34th anniversary, boasting over 875 graduates who have gone through its rigorous and enlightening curriculum.

Leadership Randolph is more than just a program; it’s a journey of discovery and development for the selected participants. The ten-month program is designed to equip leaders with a deep understanding of Randolph County’s diverse resources, challenges, and opportunities. Each month, participants engage in day-long sessions held at various locations across the county, interacting with business and community leaders, and gaining insights through information sessions and special tours.

While the core curriculum of Leadership Randolph remains consistent, allowing for a comprehensive exploration of the county’s fabric, it also adapts to address current issues and topics. The program’s success lies in its ability to bring together prominent individuals from both the public and private sectors, who contribute their time, talent, and expertise.

The 2023 Class of Leadership Randolph, a group that embodies the program’s spirit of community engagement and leadership, recently graduated in a ceremony sponsored by Randolph Electric Membership Corporation. The event, led by Co-Chairs Amanda Varner of the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office and Scott Harris of Technimark LLC, celebrated the latest cohort’s achievements.

Behind the scenes, a dedicated steering committee and various business sponsors work tirelessly to plan and facilitate these enriching sessions. For those inspired to be part of this transformative experience, the Asheboro/Randolph Chamber is already gearing up for the 2024 Class. Interested individuals can reach out to Amy Rudisill at the Chamber at 336-626-2626, [email protected], or at chamber.asheboro.com.
