Members of the Leadership Cherokee Class of 2019 selected three of their peers to receive special annual recognitions.

The Bob Frongillo “Magic Spark Plug” Award was presented to Jason Blakey with Credit Union of Georgia. Outgoing 2019 Leadership Cherokee Chair, Neil Blackman with Corblu Ecology Group was commended by Incoming Chair, Linda Lullie with Inspired 2 Design, for spearheading the Class of 2019.
The Leadership Cherokee program kicked-off with a Retreat where the group participated in both indoor and outdoor team building exercises that enabled them to learn not only about each other, but themselves through a look at personality types and communication styles. Over the course of the nine-month period, Leadership Cherokee exposed the group of existing and emerging leaders to a broad range of sessions that focused on topics such as economic development, infrastructure, government, justice, arts, education, recreation, tourism, public safety, healthcare and social/human services.
