Gay West, with the Alabama Cooperative Extension System, and your Chamber of Commerce will once again team up in 2012 to sponsor a Chilton Leadership class. This effort began in 1998 and has graduated almost 200 local citizens who want to step up to the next level of leadership in our community. Many of the graduates have taken the challenge and you see them today on your city and town councils, as your state representative, and in other places of leadership.
