The people behind, in front of and in between the scenes:
The Leadership Center staff and the Nebraska Vocational Agricultural Foundation Board of Directors

2018 was quite a year for The Leadership Center. Collectively between events and donations, we raised nearly $40,000.00 towards rehabbing the tree line, adding first aid kits at the cabins, and outdoor lightening. Thank you to all those who donated towards the work we do at The Leadership Center and the guests we serve. Thank you.
