This has been the most educational and humbling experience I have had in my entire career.  Catawba County should be honored to have this program in place to educate and be of service to the community.

Leadership Catawba is a tremendously eye-opening and life changing experience.  It has provided me with extensive information about the community that I would not have access to elsewhere.  I have lived in Catawba County my entire life, and now have more community awareness and sense of responsibility because of the Leadership Catawba program.
