Take a moment to listen to our Alumni tell about their experiences with Ottumwa Leadership Academy.

“I was sitting in one of our last meetings at the Ottumwa Leadership Academy and what they said resonated with me and actually spoke to my heart. “What are you doing that is making a difference in your community?” I am now Coaching Jr. High Sports as well as volunteering with the high school activities. I am so excited to be able to be involved with kids. They are my passion. I may not be a CEO, but I am a leader to those kids and I remind myself of that every day.” Lexie Farrell, Class of 2014
