emerg oboro1 300OWENSBORO, Ky. (9/4/14) — Twenty-six participants were selected to participate in the 2015 class of Emerge Owensboro, a leadership development program co-sponsored by the Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce and the Economic Development Corporation.

While we hate to turn people away from the program, it is a great problem to have when you have more applicants than spots in the class,” said Amy Jackson, President and CEO of the chamber. “We plan for this program to continue for many years, so we hope those not selected this year will be back next year as applicants.”
