  Odegeo…Leadership for Fillmore County Class Holds Its First Session
 
The 2018-2019 Odegeo. . . Leadership for Fillmore County class met for its first introductory session on September 18th in Grafton at Gary’s Brickhouse Grille.  This year’s participants are: Holly Ackland, Janet Bartels, Julie Kment, Lindsay Eichelberger, Jennifer Griffith, Ian Hrasky, Ashley Kassik, Chris Nichols, LaDonna Pendleton, Valerie Poppert, Victoria Verhage, Christopher Warnick and Justina Yound.  
 Vicky Thompson, a member of the Fillmore County Development Corporation (FCDC) Leadership Committee gave opening remarks to the class and explained that the Odegeo Project is a leadership class organized by the Leadership Development Committee of the FCDC and gave a short history of the program that began in 1994. The sessions give the participants an opportunity to see many business, cultural and political aspects of Fillmore County as well as a chance to improve their leadership skills.  This is the 18th Odegeo leadership class.
 “Do You Know Them” was a skit the committee members did to help the class members think of the many different types of people they encounter in their daily lives.  The members emphasized they were only acting and were not portraying their personalities.
 Renae Marks invited the class members to introduce themselves and learn a few facts about each other as they wrote down two true facts and one false fact about themselves. The class then guessed which fact was false.
 The class members and FCDC Leadership Development Committee members had time for getting acquainted while they enjoyed dinner prepared by Gary’s Brickhouse Grille.  Heartland Bank sponsored the dinner.
 Brandy VanDeWalle, the Fillmore County Nebraska Extension educator, was the speaker for the session.  She used “Real Colors” and hands on learning tools to help the class identify their personality characteristics.   Recognizing that people have different personal characteristics can help a person be a better leader and work with a group.
 Then Sharla Dinneen went over the Fillmore County Trivia Quiz with the class.  Patt Lentfer, Executive Director of the FCDC, went through the binder that told the class what was expected of them and the outline of the year’s sessions.
 The next session of the Odegeo…Leadership for Fillmore County will be held on October 16th and will concentrate on the history and tourism of the County.
