Leadership class begins for Milam group

Last week was such a busy week but a good one. We started a Leadership Milam class that will go throughout the year with representatives from around the county to work together to make Milam County better.

We met at Morningstar Ranch in Milano and the two-day event was very uplifting and encouraging that the county truly does want to work together. I expect good things out of this group and am excited that the willing participants came with enthusiasm and good ideas.

This is the first class and we expect to do one each year from now on. Look for good things out of this group.
