MOUNT VERNON—Members of the Toombs-Montgomery Leadership Class, sponsored by the Toombs-Montgomery Chamber of Commerce, participated in a leadership-in-education forum presented by Brewton-Parker College Thursday, Jan. 17 on the Mount Vernon campus.
Dr. David R. Smith, president of Brewton-Parker College, welcomed the class of community leaders to the college and introduced his administration team, who each presented short topics on leadership about their respective responsibilities at the four-year Christian college. One member of the leadership class, Dr. Cindy Skaruppa, is also the vice president for enrollment services at BPC.
Dr. Ruth Ellen Porter, chair of the Division of Arts & Letters, and Ann Turner, college archivist, director of the Fountain-New Library and author of “Brewton-Parker College: Triumph Over Adversity, The First One-Hundred Years”, also spoke to the group.
The Toombs-Montgomery Leadership Class is an outreach of the Toombs-Montgomery Chamber of Commerce to provide local community members “formal training sessions on specific areas of personal and community development” and “the opportunity to increase their overall knowledge of the community and the importance of good citizenship,” according to the Chamber’s website.
Brewton-Parker College is the only four-year accredited Christian college in south Georgia.
