CAPE GIRARDEAU, Nov. 6, 2012 — Dr. Erin Fluegge Woolf, professor of management at Southeast Missouri State University, recently graduated from the Leadership Missouri program sponsored by the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Thirty qualified candidates completed the 2012 Leadership Missouri program. Fluegge served as president of the 2012 Leadership Missouri Class.
Leadership Missouri was founded in 1990 to identify current and emerging leaders throughout Missouri, enhance their leadership skills and deepen their knowledge of the challenges and opportunities facing our state. A program of the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Leadership Missouri was founded on the belief that the community, just as any business or organization, requires strong leadership to grow and improve. Gov. Jay Nixon serves as the Honorary Chair of the Leadership Missouri program.
The seven month program began in April with a trip to the state’s capitol in Jefferson City, Mo. Consecutive sessions were held each month in Branson, Joplin, Kirksville, St. Louis, Warrensburg and Lake Ozark. James Anderson, president and chief executive officer of the Springfield Chamber of Commerce, was the keynote speaker at the graduation ceremonies held at Tan-Tar-A in Lake Ozark.
