Chris Schmiesing Selected as Leadership Ohio Fellow

Posted on: March 24th, 2021 No Comments

 

Piqua’s Community and Economic Development Director, Chris Schmiesing, has been named one of 43 leaders from across the state of Ohio invited to participate in Leadership Ohio, the state’s most prestigious and longest-running statewide leadership program. The class of 2021 is comprised of accomplished professionals from the private sector, government, and non-profits.

“I am honored to have been selected to participate in the Leadership Ohio program, and I genuinely look forward to interacting with this talented group of individuals,” stated Chris Schmiesing, Community, and Economic Development Director.

Over the course of the year, the Leadership Ohio Fellows will engage with a unique network of scholars, activists, innovators, and influencers. Leadership Ohio provides impactful civic leadership development opportunities and provides exposure to an important network of decision-makers, including high-ranking state officials. Perhaps most importantly, Fellows will be supported in developing Ohio Impact Projects that respond to conditions of inequity and injustice.

“I am humbled by the number of outstanding leaders that will be joining our 2021 Leadership Ohio Class. They bring a wealth of knowledge and experience, and together will be a powerful force of collaboration and purpose to move Ohio forward to be the best state to live and work,” said Nan Baker, Board President.

This year’s program will launch virtually on April 16 and feature a new partnership between Leadership Ohio and the acclaimed National Institute on Civil Discourse.
