Hardin Leadership Program gets you "connected"

“The program connected me to people in the county that I would not have met on a daily basis,” said Dellifield.  

A graduate of the 2013 Hardin Leadership Program, Dellifield holds a bachelor’s degree from ONU and a master’s from Bluffton University.  Having grown up in the Allen East area and living out of state for a few years, however, put him at a disadvantage when it came to a knowledge of area individuals and resources.
