Rep. Cheeseman Inspires Future Leaders of Eastern Connecticut

Posted on March 25, 2019 by admin


EAST LYME – Last week State Representative Holly Cheeseman (R-37) and State Senator Paul Formica (R-20) spoke as panelists to the Eastern Connecticut Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Program Class of 2020 at the East Lyme Town Hall. The legislators explained their roles in leadership in their careers.

“Don’t be afraid to step forward,” Rep. Cheeseman advised the class.

This program prepares promising leaders for positions of responsibility by acquainting them with significant community processes and pressing issues. Participants engage in discussions with established leaders, go behind-the-scenes at the region’s key institutions, build their leadership skills, create a lasting network of contacts, and give back to the community with a meaningful group project.
