B.I.G. Graduates 19th Class -Member Crossroads- Bobbi Kellough

On Wednesday, we graduated our 19th  B.I.G. Class with a small celebration at the Chamber. Mayor Luke Feeney came to chat with the class and talk to them about city government.  We then walked to the Ross County Courthouse to continue the day’s topic of City/County Government and small business where we met with Ross County Commissioner, Steve Neal.  We had the chance to sit in on a hearing with Judge Mike Ater and talk with him about his role and the drug court.  We toured the Court House and learned some of the history of the building.  We ended our day with small business owner, Liz Corzine, of Schlegel’s to talk about the joys and challenges of owning a small business.  This was the final leg of our nine-month tour around the county.

B.I.G. stands for Business, Industry, and Government.  Over the course of nine months we had the opportunity to visit many places including Horizon, Infosight, the Ohio Statehouse, Kenworth, Adena Health System, Pickaway Ross Career and Technology Center, Glatfelter, and CCI.  During those visits, we were able to sit down with the CEO’s and talk with them about their leadership styles, challenges in the workplace, learn the history of the companies, and talk about the future of the companies as well.  We also get to tour the facilities.  Leadership is a key element in this class as we want the participant to have growth and be able to share with their teams and strengthen their leadership skills throughout the year.

Do you have an emerging leader that you would like to have participate in the 2018-2019 B.I.G. Class?  We are taking applications now and there are only 15 spots to be filled.  Contact Bobbi Kellough at the Chamber for additional information bkellough@chillicotheohio.com.  Don’t delay, submit your application today!
