Class of 2020 Holds Pop Up Virtual Call in Lieu of Southaven Session
MEC’s Leadership Mississippi Southaven session was unfortunately canceled earlier this month due to concerns surrounding COVID-19.
However, leaders must adapt to change - and we weren’t going to let coronavirus stop us from having our first-ever Pop Up Virtual Leadership Mississippi session!
The Class of 2020 participated in a video call on Followership, and were joined by notable alumni like MEC Chair Lex Taylor of the Taylor Group, Inc.; Carmen Kyle from the Southaven Chamber of Commerce; Michael Bellipanni from Northcentral Electric Power; and Rebecca Wiggs from Butler Snow LLP.
There was also a special surprise appearance from former Governor Haley Barbour, a graduate of the second class of Leadership Mississippi! Gov. Barbour inspired the class on how to stay resilient through a crisis and reflected on his time as Governor during Hurricane Katrina.
We had a great time learning from these great leaders, and we can’t wait to see the Class of 2020 in person soon!
