"The goal of Senior Leadership Gwinnett is to make seniors aware of what's going on around them, so that they can help contribute to the county success with their unique backgrounds and experiences," says Elliott Brack, chairman. "We want to arm seniors with information so they can make a difference in the county."
The members will receive a host of information on the life in Gwinnett County during their program year, meeting at multiple sites around the area. The group will meet at the Gwinnett Detention Center, the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center, the state Capitol, Emory Eastside Medical Center and the Snellville Senior Citizens Center, as well as many other locations around Gwinnett.
Members of the 2008-09 class are: Roger Blais, Lawrenceville; Margaret Cain, Buford; Larry Christopher, Peachtree Corners; Sal DeGaetano, Snellville; Zach Doppel, Lilburn; Gary Galloway, Monroe; Herbert George, Lawrenceville; James Gillespie, Grayson; Margo Hunt, Lilburn; Richard Gray, Lawrenceville; Joanne Johnson, Lawrenceville; Carol Lee, Snellville; Tom Long; Braselton; Joe Markham, Loganville; Debbie Mason, Norcross; Gloria McGuire, Suwanee; Margaret Morgan, Gainesville; Julia Nash, Lilburn; Brenda Pruitt, Buford; Ann Sechrist, Snellville; Navin Shah, Duluth; Don Smith, Grayson; Tom Stratton, Snellville; Jackie Thornberry, Lilburn; Ron Weber, Lawrenceville; and Charles Whitehead, Lawrenceville.
Senior Leadership Gwinnett offers people age 55 and older an opportunity to interact with others across the county, find out what is happening in this county, and apply what they learn in finding ways to make the county a better place to live. Classes are limited to 30 members each year.
The program meets for a day-long session once a month from September through May. Topics for each day are well-planned and present an overall view of key elements of the community.
One of the benefits of the program is that it allows people from all corners of the county to know key people from other parts of the county.
