Brooke graduated from the Leadership Georgia Class of 2014. Each year, Leadership Georgia chooses a specialized program with a unique theme for the participants involved. The five-tiered theme for Leadership Georgia Class of 2014 focused on Georgia as a state of giving—giving from within, giving through military defense, giving through stewardship, giving through one’s legacy, and giving life to stories.
Leadership Georgia is one of the oldest and most successful leadership programs in the United States. It inspires to train and teach young leaders from all walks of life. The program aims for participant diversity including race, culture, age, gender, and more. Hundreds of citizens apply for a place in the Leadership Georgia program each year but only 60 applicants are chosen. After the Leadership Georgia program is finished, the participants are better equipped to lead their fellow citizens with respect and dignity.
