Margaret Kennard, program director with Leadership Roswell, talked about the leadership development offering at a recent Roswell Sertoma Club meeting.

The program is taking applications for a new class to start in September. This 10-month program, the oldest one in New Mexico, having started 27 years ago, meets once a month on Fridays and accepts applicants from all walks of life.

Kennard said the course covers local, county and state issues and includes visits to many government locales, including a trip to the Roundhouse in Santa Fe during the legislative session.

With only 30 students per class, Kennard cautioned that not all applicants make it the first time. But she added, “If you don’t make it on your first application, try again!”

The Roswell Sertoma Club assists in the purchase of hearing aids and speech therapy to people in need, provides 27 $500 college scholarships each semester and supports various youth activities and other charitable causes. Anyone wishing to join the group is welcome to attend one of its meetings at noon at the Elks Lodge every Friday. Forms for assistance are on the club’s website, roswellsertoma.org.
