Leadership Southeast Georgia (LSEGA), a premier regional leadership development program, is pleased to announce four program participants have been named to represent Bulloch County. They will join 26 leaders from across the region in participating in the 2018 LEGSA class.
The Bulloch County participants are:
· Jason Boyles, City of Statesboro
· Keely Fennell, NeSmith Construction and Land Development
· Tal Johnson, Dabbs, Hickman, Hill & Cannon, LLP and Seth Roesel, TQ Constructors, Inc.
· Seth Roesel, TQ Constructors, Inc.
The five-month program is designed to grow and inspire engaged community leaders to improve the overall quality of life in our area.
LSEGA began in January 1999, when leaders representing the business, local government and education communities in 10 southeast Georgia counties collaborated to create a program that crosses districts to promote community and economic development.
Participants live and work within Bryan, Bulloch, Camden, Chatham, Effingham, Glynn, Liberty, Long, McIntosh and Screven counties, which together are known as Georgia’s Coastal Region. Leadership Southeast Georgia offers a unique opportunity for the participants to build close working relationships, promote positive growth and develop strategic common goals that positively benefit our coast.
“We had an overwhelming number of civic and business leaders nominated from across Coastal Georgia this year,” said Lee Beckman, a graduate of the class of 2013 and chairman of the 2018 board of directors, who also is the manager of governmental affairs with the Georgia Ports Authority. “Many factors are considered during the selection process to ensure that each class reflects the diversity of the regions we serve.”
Participants were nominated by the alumni of the Leadership Southeast Georgia program and by community business leaders in the coastal region. They will spend two days a month in surrounding counties learning about topics that affect the region such as healthcare, education, economic development and transportation.
“I’m excited to see the ideas and results that this group will generate and produce that will benefit our region and community,” said Beckman.
Bulloch County’s SACK has contributed $15,000 to support Leadership Southeast Georgia over the past two years.
Founded in 1945, SACK has established its reputation by safely providing high-quality construction services in the electrical, mechanical/HVAC and plumbing trades to industrial, commercial, educational, institutional, federal and healthcare clients.
“We believe that it is our responsibility to give back to the communities that give so much to us,” said Paul Roesel, president and CEO of SACK. Since 2009, SACK has donated more than $333,000 to various charities and events in the southeast Georgia region. For more information, visit www.lsega.com.
