Dennis Corporation is proud to announce that Special Projects Manager, Dwight Cathcart, graduated from the Leadership Columbia Class of 2010-2011 at a ceremony on June 14, 2011.

Mr. Cathcart stated, “My experience with Leadership Columbia has been nothing short of extraordinary. It’s a great program that allows people like me to share their visions and goals for the City of Columbia with constituents and peers who all see the true potential of this great city. The in-depth knowledge and unique information you are provided helps young leaders within the community understand how the City has developed throughout the years. More importantly, I know what our direction is for the future and what must happen to get us there.“

Leadership Columbia participants have backgrounds in many different areas of the community such as business, government, education, environment and the arts. For over 30 years, this program has offered opportunities for Greater Columbia’s promising leaders to understand how their community works, build relationships with fellow leaders and become inspired to focus their talents in ways to best serve the Midlands.

Only 58 business and community leaders were selected to participate in the ten month program. The class met one day per month, during which participants took place in discussions and activities to better understand their community and its needs. Mr. Cathcart stated, “I am honored to have been selected among such an outstanding group of professionals. This has been such a great experience for each of us.“
