Leadership Development Academy presentation day, graduation set for May 9

The Leadership Development Academy (LDA) of Rock County completed another year and welcomes the public to attend its free Project Presentation Day for the class of 2018-19 from 2 – 5 p.m. on May 9 at The Venue, 37 South Water St., Janesville.

Each of the 29 participants of this year’s graduating class are working within a small group to produce a collaborative project that addresses a specific community need. Many of these projects have made Beloit, Janesville and all of Rock County a better place.

“The Leadership Development Academy participants are making a difference in Rock County. Their projects are sustainable and will impact others for years to come,” stated Linda Ross, executive director of the Leadership Development Academy.

A graduation celebration for this year’s Leadership Development Academy participants will be held from 5 – 8 p.m. on  May 9, also at The Venue in Janesville. Tickets are $40 each and available by contacting Ross at

Applications are being accepted for next year’s class until June 1. For more information on LDA and its program, visit
