The Vision Leadership program is directed by Rooks County Economic Development Director Roger Hrabe, and is supported by the Economic Development Office and the Plainville Community Foundation. The program seeks to help active members of the community become more effective in moving groups to performance. Other points of emphasis are learning styles, vision, listening, collaboration and facilitating from the chair.
At the graduation, the leadership class members and several of the alumni talked about some of their class projects, some of which have been going on for years. "The purpose of the class project is to do something that will make a positive impact on the community," said Roger Hrabe. "We have now had over 90 people go through the leadership program since 2004, and all the projects have made a difference, and some continue to make a difference even years after they were first started."
