The Leadership Rockdale Class of 2015 celebrated its graduation June 16 at Hawthorne Suites in Conyers. This year’s LR program graduates built a legacy garden and outdoor classroom from the Conyers Head Start program, and spent one day a month for six months learning intensively about Rockdale and Georgia and developing leadership skills. The Leadership Rockdale Program, operated by the Conyers-Rockdale Chamber of Commerce, is a once-a-month, eight-month long program running October-May that develops leadership skills and networking contacts while intensively educating potential leaders about many things they need to know about Rockdale-Conyers.
