The Southern is looking for leaders in our region.
Leaders working in their own ways to make Southern Illinois a better place to live, work and get an education. These are people who labor outside of the confines of their employment to improve the region and may be essential to volunteer efforts offered through churches, civic groups or schools.
These leaders may be well-known and recognized as leaders, or may work away from the spotlight to bring people and progress to the region.
The Leaders Among Us Class of 2019 will be announced and honored at an event later in the year.
The deadline to submit nominations is Monday, July 8, 2019.
To nominate an individual for the Leaders Among Us Class of 2019, please email your nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the person’s name, phone number, occupation, a description of her or his community work and a few sentences on why you believe she or he deserves this honor.
