The Dubois County Leadership Academy launched in 2011 as an avenue for training leaders from across the county. The 10 Participants in this year’s program have met since April to hear from established community and business leaders and work on capstone projects, which are designed to provide a benefit and/or create a positive result for local communities.

Five participants are in the process of bringing a musical instrument park — which will include five pieces of weatherproof equipment — to Ferdinand’s 18th Street Park. The other group of five is expanding the Little Free Library program across the county.
