Leadership NTC


The 2016-2017 LNTC Class


Renee Gonzalez - Cutler Orosi Unified School Dist. High School English Teacher

Stephanie Hurtado - Dinuba Community Services Recreation Supervisor

Jackson Moore - Dinuba Sentinel Reporter

The 2016-17 Class of Leadership Northern Tulare County did an awesome job at the Cinco de Mayo Festival and parade. They may have been a small group but they were mighty.  Thank you to all of the volunteers that came out to support the class and help put the event on.  It was truly a community event with helpers young and old, from schools, city, businesses, the steering committee, and service clubs.  What an awesome job they all did.


The weather was a little threatening, but overall the event was spared and no rain of measure fell during the 2 days of the festival.  The music was great, the food was plentiful and delicious, and the carnival sales exceeded past years, with one of the biggest days coming on Sunday.


We are winding down the year and looking forward to graduation on June 15th at Ridge Creek.  I hope you will join us as we congratulate this year's graduates and share about the program.  If you would like to learn more about our program, there will be students, alumnus, our steering committee, and facilitator there to answer your questions.  So come and join us, June 15, 2017, for the graduation ceremony and hear how you can benefit from LNTC and hone your leadership skills.
