    A group of Emerging Leaders attended Tuesday night’s County Council meeting to see firsthand their local government in action.
    Erika Williams of Sumter Economic Development and TheLINK told members of Council that seven members of the program’s fifth class were in attendance.
    Sumter County Administrator Gary Mixon and City Manager Deron McCormick recently spoke to the students about local government and how it functions, she told Council members.
    “So we just came this evening to observe the process,” she said.
    Over the course of nine monthly sessions, the students taking part in the Ross McKenzie Emerging Leaders Program learn lessons in leadership and earn three credit hours at the University of South Carolina Sumter at the completion of the program.
