The Leadership Rockwall program began in 1997 with a class of participants who aspired to learn more about the community around them in order to become influential community leaders. Today, Leadership Rockwall participants are focused on the same goal – to become part of a respected network of leaders who challenge their thinking and are inspired to immerse themselves in their community.
