Wade Hinton, chief legal officer and city attorney for Chattanooga, will participate in the 2017 Presidential Leadership Scholars program, a leadership development initiative that draws on the resources of the presidential centers of George W. Bush, William J. Clinton, George H. W. Bush and Lyndon B. Johnson. Hinton is one of 60 scholars chosen for the program’s third annual class.

The third cohort was selected after a rigorous application and review process. Scholars were selected based on their leadership growth potential and the strength of personal leadership projects aimed at improving the civic or social good by addressing a problem or need in a community, profession or organization.

Over the course of several months, Hinton will travel to each participating presidential center to learn from former presidents, key administration officials and leading academics. He also will study and put into practice varying approaches to leadership, develop a network of peers and exchange ideas with mentors and others who can help him make an impact in Chattanooga.

The program kicked off in Washington, D.C., on Feb. 7, where Hinton visited the National Archives and Records Administration, Mount Vernon and the White House Historical Association and explored personal and professional development areas including core values and civility.

Hinton’s class joins the alumni network of 121 scholars in the program. To learn more about the Presidential Leadership Scholars program, visit www.presidentialleadershipscholars.org.
