Amanda Morgan, MPA, Abbeville Area Medical Center Community Health Specialist recently graduated from Leadership South Carolina. Selection to participate in the program is competitive, with no more than 50 chosen from applicants from across the state. Morgan had the honor of being the first person from Abbeville County to complete the intensive program.
“It was an honor to have been nominated and chosen to participate in Leadership South Carolina,” stated Morgan. “Rural areas are often not represented which leaves them at a disadvantage. I look forward to utilizing the skills I have gained to help our community move forward.”
Leadership South Carolina was established in 1979 by the Governor’s Office and the South Carolina business community and is the oldest and most respected of the statewide leadership programs. The curriculum is a nine-month core program that provides gifted and highly motivated South Carolinians an opportunity to advance their leadership qualities while broadening their understanding of issues facing the State. Its goal is to develop and inform the participants to prepare them for service on statewide boards and commissions, run for public office, and find a non-profit passion that will positively impact the communities in which they live and work.
“We are very proud to have Amanda as member of our AAMC family,” stated Cindy Buck, AAMC Interim CEO. “Her hard work and dedication definitely benefits both our hospital and community.”
