Applications for the 2018 Leadership Guymon class are being taken at the Chamber of Commerce. This is an excellent program that benefits the community first, the businesses, and individuals.

“The best way to find yourself is in the service to others.” Ghandi

One of the important parts in becoming a leader is knowing what you feel passionate about. When you realize what you really care about, then you find ways that you can improve there, ways you can help. It’s an adventure that leads to you being a happier and more respected person. And Texas County has so many areas that are doing excellent things for our communities and our families. And almost all of them need help.

Remember that a volunteer doesn’t get paid because they are priceless.
