I’d like to take a moment and share my experience with three wonderful programs I’ve participated in that have given me unique insights about our hometown.
The first is Leadership Seguin, a class organized and conducted by the Seguin Area Chamber of Commerce. If I remember correctly, I was in the third class and, at that point in time, we did not have a service component to the program as they do now. Over the last several years, the Leadership Seguin classes have spearheaded service projects that enhance and improve our community. The class selects the project and raises the needed funds to complete it. I have a distinct memory of a fellow class member who was born and raised in Seguin saying that he learned more about the city in this class than he thought possible — and he thought he knew everything! I found that to be so true. I learned many interesting aspects about our community from industry, real estate and art to business, service organizations and local government. It was a wonderful experience and no matter how long you’ve been in Seguin, I encourage you to make it a goal to be involved in Leadership Seguin.
