Mr. Tyler Knutson
The LEAD SI initiative was designed to ensure a continuous supply of homegrown leaders for the future of Southern Illinois. Future leaders will attended a three day Institute held on the Southern Illinois University Carbondale campus. The future leaders will be led through a full curriculum developed by university professionals focused on developing skills such as communication, problem solving, team building, and decision making. They will also be presented with opportunities to network with regional leaders from the business, government, education, and healthcare sectors.
Following completion of the Institute, future leaders continue through a year-long schedule of events focused on continuing social networking, leadership development, and appreciation of southern Illinois. LEAD SI sponsored events will take participants across the region, exposing them to the beauties and challenges facing future leaders of southern Illinois.
