The Leadership Edinburg Class XXXII recently celebrated its graduation at the historical Southern Pacific Depot. This past year, LE hosted its courses virtually.

“This class was definitely different from our traditional LE courses.” said Ronnie Larralde, executive director of the Edinburg Chamber. “This just shows how committed our LE Class is to making a difference in our community. They maintained their goals and completed their project despite the distractions of daily life and a global pandemic.”

Among the LE Class XXXII are 11 participants ranging from educators to business owners. Mayor Richard Molina, graduate of LE Class XXVI presented the keynote address to the graduates expressing the importance of leadership and staying active in local community affairs.

LE Class XXXII completed several virtual events including a leadership retreat and sessions that focused on education, healthcare, history, media, economics, government, quality of life and community service.

Each Leadership class selects a project that they work on together and complete within one year of the program. Class XXXII completed an art installation that reads “ETX.” The installation is 20-feet long and eight-feet tall, featuring a mural of Edinburg heritage in the back. LE Class will be unveiling the photo worthy artwork late August 2021.

Leadership Edinburg is a program of the Edinburg Chamber of Commerce. It is a growing organization that strives to encourage a better Edinburg through strong leadership skills.

The LE Steering Committee is currently accepting applications for Class XXXIII.
