Patty Hornbuckle, President of the Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce, was a guest during “Chamber Chat” on the WTIM Morning Show on Thursday. Hornbuckle and Chris Casey of the University of Illinois Extension were the facilitators of the LEADership Academy. Hornbuckle stated due to the winter storm on February 24, they visited two local businesses which were MBM in Taylorville and GSI in Assumption.
Hornbuckle says those that completed the academy learned the business, political, and community perspectives of Christian County.
A graduation ceremony was held for those that were in the LEADership Academy on Wednesday.
