Duncan Chamber releases names of upcoming Leadership Duncan class members

DUNCAN — Duncan Chamber of Commerce and Industry announced the 25 people slated to participate in Leadership Duncan Class XIX.

Of the group, four are employed by Duncan Public Schools, two work for Edwards Jones, two work for the Tilley Group, two work for Halliburton Energy Services and three are employed by banks. Other businesses and organizations throughout the community are also represented by this year’s class.

“We’ve got some good candidates this year,” Sandy Stewart, director of investor services for the Chamber, said.

The leadership class provides people in the community an opportunity to learn about their community while developing their leadership skills. Although many have been leaders in their businesses or in community groups, the leadership class helps them figure out what their strengths and weaknesses are as leaders.

Each year, the program is headed by leadership committee chairman Bill Gossett, who previously went through the Leadership Class. Stewart is also a graduate of the class, after spending time in Class XVI.

This year’s group includes Kristen Arrington with Edward Jones, Channa Byerly with Duncan Public Schools, Tanner Cline with Edward Jones, Natalie Cole with BancFirst, Josiah Criswell with ASCOG, Shea Doughty with Stim Lab Inc., Daniel Farrell with American Red Cross, Jerri Lynn Freeman who is self-employed, Chris Glenn with Duncan Regional Hospital, Shannon Hall-Sanders who is self-employed, Nichole Hammond with First Bank & Trust Co., Lindsay Hayes with KellPro Inc., Allison Lovett with Duncan Public Schools, Monica Neal with Chickasaw Nation, Ronda Rakes with Halliburton Energy Services, Diana Rawls who is self-employed, Michele Scott with Duncan Public Schools, Amanda Slate with Jamie Slate Insurance Agency, Justin Smith with Duncan Public Schools, Vance Taff with The Tilley Group, Kimberly Tilley with The Tilley Group, Megan Whan with Arvest Bank, Cody White with Halliburton Energy Services, Shayla Wright who is self-employed and Karen Kaley with Cotton Electric.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
