Leadership Robins Region

Each year the Leadership Robins Region (LRR) Class engages emerging and existing leaders in a year-long program that broadens their knowledge of community needs, sharpens their leadership skills, and challenges them and others to seek solutions to the issues affecting Houston County. This year’s 2017 Leadership Class is comprised of 19 individuals from various diverse professional backgrounds who are excited about making an impact in the Houston County community.

The 2017 LRR Class has elected to partner with the Houston County Association for Exceptional Citizens (Happy Hour) on a project focused on renovating five life skills workshops. Happy Hour is an organization that provides vocational rehabilitation, community employment opportunities, and training to developmentally disabled adults in the areas of personal care, safety, daily living techniques, work adjustment, and social skills. Happy Hour has been a full service resource to Houston County and the greater Middle Georgia region since 1956. Clients of Happy Hour play an active role in the life of Houston County through recycling programs, cleaning services, postal services, and various community endeavors.
