June 2020: In The Community

July 2, 2020

Chamber Leadership 

Troy Heath, Gas Systems Coordinator, and Jarrett McGalliard, Water Resources Engineering Support Manager, recently graduated from the Greenville-Pitt County Chamber of Commerce Leadership Institute. Over the course of eight months, they learned about issues facing our community, developed skills needed to enhance leadership strengths, and learned how to become involved in leadership roles in our community. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, part of the course was presented online, and their graduation looked much different than normal. Kate Teel, Chamber President & CEO, personally presented each graduate with their certificates.
