In Redwood County, 23 participants graduated from the LINC Redwood County program. LINC Redwood County is a leadership training program that engages community members to lead, inspire, network and create to build a sustainable future in Redwood County.

Catherine Rasmussen is the lead educator for LINC Redwood County. She commented, “it’s been exciting to work with the LINC Redwood County steering committee members since day one. I appreciate the continued commitment the Redwood County Board has shown to the region, and the value they place on building relationships among informed, passionate people. Your work embodies the successes that can happen when people come together to build on the assets and strengths of a place, its businesses, and residents.”

LINC Redwood County has been operating since 2017. The program is sponsored by Redwood County. Over 70 graduates have participated in the LINC Redwood County program, many of whom are serving local boards, businesses, non-profit organizations, committees and government.

Extension provides alumni programming to all graduates of Extension leadership programs. Christy Kallevig, alumni program leader, notes that this alumni network seeks to create mutual benefit. "Leaders in Minnesota's communities are making a difference, and we want to continue to be there to provide education and support. More importantly, these community leaders can be there for each other, sharing ideas and solving problems together."
