Jacqueline Michelle Brown, school social worker for the Effingham County School System, has been named to the Leadership Georgia class of 2015.

Leadership Georgia is a 43-year-old organization of community and state leaders. Affiliated with the Georgia Chamber of Commerce, Leadership Georgia trains and builds a network of emerging young leaders from across the state. Past participants include a number of influential state and national leaders, ranging from former U.S. Sen. Sam Nunn to former University of Georgia athletic director Vince Dooley.

Sixty participants are chosen each year from a pool of several hundred applicants. Class members visit five Georgia communities in a year-long exchange of ideas and experiences about important issues affecting the state.

The 2015 class of Leadership Georgia will be led by incoming president Vann Parrott. With a principal focus on “Georgia on the Rise,” the class will travel to Brasstown Valley, Thomasville, Jekyll Island, Statesboro and Atlanta.
