Mayor Jamie Watts, Town of Welaka, was selected for the 2023-2024 Cornerstone Class of Leadership Florida.

The leaders, including elected officials, corporate executives, business owners, educators and nonprofit executives, will participate in a nine-month program focusing on issues critical to Florida, leadership skills and relevant information on Florida’s history, demographics, diversities, challenges and opportunities.

“Our mission at Leadership Florida is to bring together committed leaders from all over the state to recharge their leadership skills and expand their network,” said Wendy Spencer, president and CEO of Leadership Florida, in a release. “Through this powerful community, our class participants are able to find the knowledge and inspiration to take on some of Florida’s biggest challenges.”
