Welcome the Appalachian Leadership Institute Fellows!

Congratulations to the 40 fellows selected for the 2022-2023 Class of the Appalachian Leadership Institute!

This class of ARC’s leadership development program includes a diverse network of professionals representing all 13 Appalachian states and a wide spectrum of perspectives and sectors, including tourism, healthcare, education, civil service, and more.

“These leaders are already growing their Appalachian communities and will be even better equipped to drive positive change after their work with this program,” said ARC Federal Co-Chair Gayle Manchin. “I am eager to see this class of fellows collaborate across state lines to set big goals that will help the entire Appalachian region thrive.”

Over the next nine months, the fellows will participate in sessions focused on skill-building with regional experts, peer-to-peer learning, and case study analysis. They will then join a robust network of program alumni across the region.  Click here to read about the 2022-2023 Class!
