Leadership Ottawa County is a leadership development program seeking to strengthen and enrich leaders for Ottawa County. After completing its tenuous class project recently, it held its Class of 2019 graduation recently at the Catawba Island Club.
This year’s class included Ryan Barth, Ottawa County Sanitary Engineer; Diane Belden; Annette Dimond, Trinity United Methodist Church; Douglass Everett, Howard Hanna; Richard Frohne, Resort at Erie Landing; Randall Genzman, Village of Oak Harbor; Karen Graham, Lakeside United Methodist Church; Dakota Harkins, Lakeside Heritage Society; Jill Kozlok, Commodore Perry Federal Credit Union; Meghan Matta, Northcoast Property Management; Emily Messino, Lakeside Chautauqua; Gayle Millinger, Croghan Colonial Bank; Sandra Ostheimer, City of Port Clinton; Jane Taylor; William Taylor; Kathy Varga and Mike Zipfel, Genoa Bank.
Highlights of the graduation event included the presentation of the LOC 2019 class project, the conversion of an old Port Clinton church into the new location for the Ottawa County Family Advocacy Center.
Fundraising for this project was done through a huge rummage sale and donations.
