DON'T TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT….. Hear how great this program is FROM PARTICIPANTS! 

“Leadership Greenwood was a great program that enabled me to connect with other participants as we embarked together on a thoughtfully curated year-long survey of Greenwood. From tours of local factories to panel discussions with educators and politicians, this program provided a fantastic platform to better understand Greenwood and to consider the qualities of leadership. I am thankful for the Chamber of Commerce’s efforts to develop this valuable program and am glad I participated.” - Daniel Splaingard, Beard+Riser Architects

“Leadership Greenwood has provided me with information and exposure to resources in Greenwood I would have otherwise not received or known about despite growing up here.  These resources have helped me better understand both the inequities and the opportunities to generate ideas about how to support the obvious growth and improvement of the town I call home.” - Dr. Tamala Boyd Shaw, Delta Academies

“An awesome, one-of-a-kind MS Delta experience!  I am most appreciative of the new information  learned about our local community and those persons who took time out of their business schedules to meet with us.  Yet, the value in this experience for me are my peers.  They represent the best and brightest of Leflore County.  Our commonalities have allowed us to bond, but it is our differences and mutual respect for each other that have made us better people. Beth and the Greenwood Chamber, yall ROCK!: - Dr. Ro'Shaun Bailey, Mississippi Valley State University
