Where Hondo "goes" in the future
is the business of every citizen.
Leadership 2000 is a program de-
signed to enable participants to learn
what their community is all about, in
order to better understand,where it
can and should go in the future.
"I learned a great deal about the
community, city, county and state
operations, business and more. There
are many programs out there that
people don’t know about. Every topic
was very interesting. 1 made new
friends and 1 highly recommend that
everyone join and participate in
LEADERSHIP 2000,” according to
1992 graduate Danny Garcia, Prod-
uct Development Supervisor for
Universal Rundle Corp.
Leadership 2000 is not only an

front in setting goals and marking the
direction our community takes in the

Tomey, II, real estate agent for
Hondo Realty about the program.
In order to be a leader, you must
know who you are leading and espe-
cially where you are leading. In order
to do this effectively you need-
knowledge about your product, in
this case, Hondo.
"1 though I knew a lot about
Hondo, but I was very surprised at

ship 2000 program. Anyone who
would like a better understanding of
the inner workings of the various

tem, medical fields, business and
industry should enroll," Betsy
Herrmann, 1992 graduate and owner
of the Flightline Cafe said.
