Leadership Worthington is looking for a few more good people to fill its 2011-12 class.

"We can take as many as 25 applicants, and we're getting there," LW director Joan Bird said.

The deadline for applying for the adult leadership course is Sept. 12.

The nine-month course begins Sept. 22. One Thursday afternoon a month, the class meets at the Worthington Education Center.

Topics range from personal and professional awareness to skills needed to take leadership positions in careers, the community and in families.

Class members put their new skills to use through projects that benefit the community.

Since beginning 21 years ago, LW has graduated 420 students, many who have taken on community leadership positions.

Graduates gather the first Wednesday of each month for fun and fellowship. In September, the gathering will be at the Hills Market beginning at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 7.

LW class applications are available at its offices, 200 E. Wilson Bridge Road, or by calling (614) 883-3057. Applications also are available online at www.leadershipworthington.org.
