June 24, 2019 – Rebecca Ruby of Westminster has completed the Leadership Carroll Program. She was one of over 40 graduates of the program honored during a ceremony at Martin’s Westminster on June 11.
Ruby is a sales associate at Carroll Lutheran Village where she counsels prospective residents on the living options available at the Village and coordinates move-ins. “This experience gave me an excellent overview of what makes Carroll County a great place to live and work,” Ruby said. “Having an insider’s view really helped me understand the challenges and opportunities that we have as a community.”
Leadership Carroll is a program of the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Carroll Community College to help build civic awareness and leadership skills. The program begins with an overnight retreat in September where participants assess their leadership styles and skills. In subsequent sessions, the class spends one day a month intently focusing on one topic through site visits and guest speakers. Topics include state and local government, education, business and economic development, justice and law, media and nonprofits, and agriculture.
Carroll Lutheran Village is an accredited, not-for-profit continuing care retirement community in Westminster that includes 398 homes and apartments, 50 assisted living suites in the Diven House and 103 skilled nursing beds in the Health Care Center.
