The Better Giver – Leadership Academy

FEG’s Joe Clark interviews Pam Shoot and Carrie Bale about the Leadership Academy of Madison County. Formed in 1981 by the Chamber, the city of Anderson, and Anderson University in response to a changing community. Their goal is to connect servant leaders to build better communities not just within Madison County, but wherever those leaders may go. Their three main programs cater to juniors and seniors in high school and to adults in the work force. If committing to any of these programs is not an option, there are also isolated trainings and conferences that are provided by the Academy as well. FEG has sent several of its employees through the Academy, and so can you. Find out how you can get involved by watching the interview and going to the Leadership Academy’s website at
