Reception to welcome new Leadership Oswego County class

A welcome reception for the Leadership Oswego County Class of 2011 will take place Sept. 9 in Room 118 of Rich Hall at SUNY Oswego.

The reception, open to program alumni, employers and interested community members, will run from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.

“It’s a wonderful opportunity for alumni to connect with the new class, and for employers and community members to learn more about the program,” said Jeff Grimshaw, director of the Leadership Oswego County program and assistant director of the Office of Business and Community Relations.

The program teaches community trusteeship and leadership skills resulting in a knowledgeable, diverse network of leaders committed to improving the quality of life for Oswego County residents, Grimshaw said.

“In the past 18 years, the nearly 400 program graduates have gone on to suspport a wide range of service and charitable work, making Oswego the wonderful place it is,” Grimshaw said.
