Pi Kappa Phi alumnus Taylor Richard has graduated from the Monroe Chamber of Commerce’s ‘Leadership Ouachita’ program.
Wednesday, November 4th, 34 participants graduated from the Monroe Chamber of Commerce and Leadership Council’s Leadership Ouachita program at a celebration at Bayou DeSiard Country Club. Richard, an employee of Acadian Ambulance, was recognized as part of the Leadership program’s 32nd graduating class.
The purpose of Leadership Ouachita is to develop and empower the emerging leaders of Northeast Louisiana to transform the region into a place recognized as one of the best places to live and do business. Class members engage in a series of sessions focused on education and workforce development, economic development and infrastructure.
The program also provides insight on public decision making, practical and in-depth discussions on public issues pertinent to Ouachita Parish, an expanded knowledge and understanding of the community in which we live, and the opportunity to develop lasting relationships with growing and established leaders in a neutral environment.
Since the class inception thirty-two years ago, over 850 people have graduated from the program.
