The Anson County Chamber of Commerce graduated its 22nd class of community leaders on Monday, June 11, as part of its Leadership Anson program.

To celebrate the graduation, the class participants hosted a ceremony at Twin Valley Golf Course. The evening included a buffet-style meal served up by Clarence at Crisp Café, located in the Twin Valley Golf Course Club; speeches; shared memories; and, of course, plenty of photo opportunities.

Leadership Anson, a six-month program that nurtures and engages the leadership skills of potential and current community leaders, deepens participants’ understanding of Anson County, its issues and opportunities, and encourages graduates to take active roles as stewards and advocates for positive change.

Since its start in 1996, Leadership Anson has graduated more than 250 community leaders.
