MutualBank congratulates Angie Trader on her recent graduation and completion of the Grant County Leadership Academy through LEAD Inc.
Trader was one out of ten people picked to participate in the leadership class. The class lasted for eight months and required each individual to be an intern and join a board of an organization in the community for the duration of the class. Trader became an intern on the board for Affordable Housing in Grant County. She said, "It was a very interesting board as I came to learn about what they do for the people in Grant County. They do housing of people who cannot afford housing on their own. Plus, they try to beautify neighborhoods that are run down."
The class participants traveled to different places throughout Grant County from Taylor University, Indiana Wesleyan University, General motors, funeral homes, Mississinewa 1812 Battlefield, Marion Police Department and as far as the State House. The tour of Grant County was interesting to Trader because she learned about places and people, some she knew and some of which she had never heard. Trader said it was interesting to see how all of the different companies each have a part in the leadership of Grant County and Marion.
Trader's favorite experience was the visit to the Marion Police Department. They were able to witness a police dog in training for sniffing and identifying drugs. They also saw the SWAT team in a practice take down and each participant had an opportunity to shoot a machine gun in the shooting range.
MutualBank thanks Trader for taking this opportunity to grow and congratulates her on this impactful accomplishment. Way to go!
