1990 – 2020 Thirty Years of Leadership Development

For thirty years the Economic Development Authority of Jones County and the Jones County Community Development Foundation have encouraged businesses and individuals to become more involved in the future growth of the community through leadership development programs. Over 500 have graduated from Leadership Jones County (LJC) since the first class in 1990. Developed to identify and prepare the community’s future leadership resources, LJC has provided Jones County with a network of current and emerging leaders who possess the skills and sense of commitment needed to improve our community.

The Projects that have been designed and implemented by LJC project teams have been improvements to our area that most likely would not have been possible without the dedication, drive and determination of you the Alumni of LJC. On behalf of the elected officials and all the citizens of Jones County, WE say a BIG THANK YOU!! Our community is a better place because of you.
