The Nebraska Chamber of Commerce and Industry has announced the members of its 10th Leadership Nebraska Class, including two individuals from here in the panhandle.
Kare Heilbrun of State Farm Kare Heilbrun Agency in Gering and Ben Watson of the Chadron State College Foundation will join 28 other up-and-coming leaders from throughout the state.
Leadership Nebraska was founded in 2006 to identify current and emerging leaders throughout the state, enhance their leadership skills, and deepen their knowledge of the challenges and opportunities facing Nebraska.
The program consists of six sessions covering a broad range of key Nebraska issues including economic development, health care, education, agriculture, government and policy development. Class X begins with an orientation in June and will conclude next February with a commencement ceremony in Lincoln. Sessions will be conducted throughout various locations of the state.
