Class ready for Government Day

Leadership Hancock County’s class of 2016-17 will get back to work on Wednesday, Jan. 4, with its fourth class day. The 25 emerging leaders will meet a dozen public officials and public safety officers as part of its Government Day curriculum.

Bobby Campbell, immediate past president of the LHC board, is the chief day chair for Government Day. He is a ranking officer at the Hancock County Sheriff’s Department, which will play host to the class as the day’s Vision sponsor. Dianna Hawkins, a graduate of the 2016 LHC class, is the other day chair.

The day’s meetings will involve officials from many state and local offices. Highlights will include a tour of the Hancock County Jail, led by Sheriff Mike Shepherd, and a K-9 demonstration by the Greenfield Police Department. The class also will meet Greenfield Mayor Chuck Fewell; County Commissioner Brad Armstrong; and Hancock County’s chief representatives in the Indiana General Assembly, Sen. Mike Crider and Rep. Bob Cherry.
