Jonesboro’s Tait chosen for Delta Academy
Jonesboro Metropolitan Planning Organization Director Erica Tait is one of eight Arkansans selected by the Delta Regional Authority to participate in its Delta Leadership Institute Executive Academy.
The academy helps fellows further their skills in community leadership and policy development to promote regional collaboration and local economic growth across DRA’s eight-state region. DLI fellows will attend six sessions focused on transportation and infrastructure, workforce training and education, entrepreneurship and disaster resilience for small businesses and communities, public health, policy and governance, and culture and tourism.
The eight selections from Arkansas are a part of a class of 51 – eight from Mississippi, seven each from Alabama, Tennessee and Louisiana, five each from Illinois and Kentucky, and four from Missouri.
