I am a member of Leadership Clarksville Class of 2024, and on Thursday, March 21, we had Government and Media Day.

I absolutely loved spending time with our incredible Clarksville Fire Rescue, getting to hear about the department, seeing demonstrations, and even getting to suit up and break through a door. πŸ‘¨β€πŸš’

We spent time at CDE Lightband learning how they operate, about the smart grid in Clarksville, and witnessing some of the lineman run drills. ⚑️

It was also great to hear from Chris Smith from Clarksvillenow.com and Cheri Reeves from Main Street Clarksville about the impact of media in Montgomery County. Thank you to you both for answering all the questions. ✍️

Thank you to Mayor Joe Pitts, Mayor Wes Golden, Director of Economic Development Josh Ward, Montgomery County Animal Care & Control Director Dave Kaske, Public Library Director Christina Riedel, Montgomery County Trustee Kimberly Wiggins, and Montgomery County Assessor of Property Erinne Hester for their presentations about their areas of oversight. πŸ›

Thank you to Lisa McClain, David Harper, Chris Smith, Kimberly Wiggins, and Christy Batts for setting up the day. What a great experience!
