The application deadline is 5 p.m. July 31 and the process is open county-wide. Applications are available atwww.kernleadersacademy.org.#
The Kern Leaders Academy is a county-wide, community leadership program whose purpose is to assist the development of visionary community leaders who recognize a healthy business climate is necessary for a strong economy, and, in turn, a vibrant community. The academy will provide education and training to civic, professional and business leaders so they can enter public service with the skills and vision to address challenges facing Kern County.
It also teaches county leaders how to listen to constituents with a clear understanding of how to seek endorsements and support, yet reserve the right for independent decisions. The goal is for graduates to obtain the knowledge and vision to put their services forward as community leaders and
eventually, elected public officials offering creative, effective solutions.
