     Instructors will include Edward T. Chaney, William L. Bondurant, Phil Grose and Michael Sponhour. State Rep. Doug Jennings will be the guest speaker during Thursday’s luncheon.

     The institute is a seven-month training program for leaders of non-profits. Twenty-eight participants from across the state are members of this year’s class.

     Funded initially with multi-year grants from the Drs. Bruce and Lee Foundation, the institute now receives major support from FMU, along with a grant from the PSARAS Foundation
