The Town of Batesburg-Leesville is excited to announce the graduation of two staff members from Leadership Lexington County. Jeremy Driggers, fleet services supervisor, and Seth Duncan, assistant town manager, completed the year-long course on January 10th.
Leadership Lexington County, or LLC, is a non-profit educational organization that offers a stimulating program to develop leaders in our community. The program incorporates hands on learning opportunities that inform participants of the resources and challenges in our region and promotes community action.
In addition to leadership development activities, the pair participated in a 12-month long community service activity. LLC Class of 2018 sought to enhance the mentoring and leadership activities of the Scooter Scott Project, a West Columbia based non-profit that serves disadvantaged youth and families.
Specifically, Jeremy and Seth were instrumental in completing the class project of raising funds to provide an activity bus, the refurbishment of 14 laptop computers and 5 desktop computers, creation of a new logo, and completion of more than 500 hours of mentoring.
“We are proud of their service and continued commitment to the residents and businesses of Lexington County,” said Ted Luckadoo, Town Manager and LLC alum.
Jeremy and Seth now join the ranks of LLC alumni along with fellow employees Tim Schumpert, Jay Hendrix, and Chris Spradley. Utility Billing Supervisor Cindy Apple has been selected to participate in LLC’s Class of 2019.
LLC accepts applications in the fall each year and is open to individuals who live or work in Lexington County.
