Greg Henderson, president and CEO of Southeast Alabama Gas District, is among those who will participate in the 2015-16 class of Leadership Alabama.

Leadership Alabama is a statewide program of Alabama leaders engaged in creating a network for positive change. Since 1989, Leadership Alabama has given established leaders across Alabama exposure to the broader fabric of the state. It develops a network of relationships and provides a structure for this network to seek mutual understanding of problems and priorities for Alabama’s future. Leadership Alabama encourages its members to act individually and in concert to move forward to help our state reach its full potential.

During the program year, class members will meet in Montgomery, Mobile, Huntsville and Birmingham. Presentations and group discussions will encourage them to make a critical examination of preconceptions about their state, their communities and themselves. Leadership Alabama is a lifelong experience and as members these leaders will continue to impact positive change in their communities.

Other area residents in this year’s class are John Coleman, former rector of St. Mary’s Episcopal Church and current executive vice president and general counsel of Coleman Worldwide Moving Group of Dothan, and Dr. Doug Littles, retiring president of Reid State Technical College.

Leadership Alabama’s board members include Seth Hammett and Linda Young, both graduates of the program.

Other local residents, or employees of local organizations, who have completed the program include Tom Albritton, Horace Horn, Damon Morgan, Gary Smith, and Michele Gerlach.
