      Elliott Marsh, Jr. of Statesboro recently met all of the graduation requirements of the Georgia Agri-Leaders Forum's Leadership Development Program. Marsh is the agribusiness instructor with Ogeechee Technical College.
       Jimmy Hill, president and CEO, Georgia Agri-Leaders Forum Foundation, said "Marsh was chosen as one of 14 individuals from across the state of Georgia to participate in the year long program that concluded in early December 2008."
       A maximum of 25 individuals are selected each year to participate in this leadership program.
Incorporated in 1989, the Georgia Agri-Leaders Forum Foundation's mission is to build leadership capacity for agriculture, agribusiness, forestry and rural communities in Georgia.
       The agribusiness industry is the largest single sector of the state's economy.
       The Forum consists of six study institutes held in Georgia as well as other locations within the U.S. Each study institute will focus on building leadership skills, exploring agriculturally related issues and giving each participant an in-depth understanding of what it takes to get involved in bringing about solutions to political, economical, cultural, social and agricultural concerns.
      Participants are selected based on leadership integrity and effectiveness; communication and analytical skills; potential for personal growth; commitment to Georgia agriculture and related industries; and a commitment to program participation.
