Leadership Ohio Valley Day of Learning
Leadership Ohio Valley is a program that is put together by the Weirton Area Chamber of Commerce. Area businesses choose representatives from their organizations who stand out to participate in the program. Hancock County Savings Bank has been participating in this program for many years and was proud to be represented this year by Deidra Edwards and Kaylee Richter, two of our best and brightest. Along with being required to earn community service hours, civic and government credits, participants must also take part in monthly learning sessions. This month one of our representatives, Deidra Edwards and Anthony Bernardi of the Greco-Hertnick Funeral Home as part of the Government committee for Leadership Ohio Valley were responsible for putting together a Day of Learning. The day of Learning was held at the Weirton City building, where participants were given a tour, the opportunity to listen to the mayor and several council members speak about their role in government, and even got to participate in a mock city council meeting. Following the council meeting they were able to participate in a fun trivia game for the chance to win a $100 gift card donated by Hancock County Savings Bank. The group ended their day with a delicious and well earned meal at Williams Country Club compliments of Hancock County Savings Bank.
We are so pleased to be a part of this wonderful program each year and hope that it continues to be a success.
