About Leadership Sturgis

Leadership Sturgis is a 4-part educational series open to anyone and everyone interested in making a difference in the community. The program welcomes students from all industries and backgrounds.

Students network with each other and with community leaders, including municipal and county representatives. They also have the opportunity to meet local business owners and tour facilities within the community. 

The goal of Leadership Sturgis is to cultivate a new generation of thinkers and doers in the Sturgis area each year. It empowers participants to ask critical questions and collaborate, and also to create positive change in their lives, at their places of work, and in the Sturgis community. Up to 20 students are accepted into the program each year, and a graduation ceremony is held at the Chamber’s Annual Banquet to celebrate each new generation of leaders in Sturgis.
