Congratulations to members of Session III of the NCJA Leadership Institute. Twenty-two leaders from across the state graduated from the 120-hour course on Nov. 19, 2021. They first came together in September to begin studies designed to help grow and develop their leadership skills, and again in October for a week with the UNC School of Government, culminating in a final week together in Salemburg during month three. One highlight of the program is the Heart of a Leader Award. This award is presented to a student in whom others see demonstrate the five leadership practices on which this course is based. These practices are modeling the way, inspiring a shared vision, challenging the process, enabling others to act, and encouraging the heart. While many worthy contenders were considered, Session III selected as their heart of a leader Chief Deputy Brandon Medina of the Nash County Sheriff’s Office. Brandon is especially noted for the encouragement provided to others throughout the course. For many, the NCJA-LI is also the capstone in pursuit of the NCJA Leadership Certificate (LCP), an expanded 400-hour leadership program. Seven members from Session III and three returning members of Session I were awarded the LCP during the graduating ceremony. Congratulations to Session I LCP recipients Chris Chandler (Waynesville PD), Tyler Medlin (Huntersville PD), and Nick Deming (SBI) and to Session III recipients Robert Dalton (Fayetteville State University PD), Dallas Warren (Leland PD), Jamie Almond (Leland PD), Adrian Mathews (Clinton PD), Billy Brown (Benson PD), Chris Ammons (Woodfin PD), and Dustin Johnson (Laurinburg PD). NCJA is very proud to have played a role in all of these professional accomplishments, and we congratulate each of you on a job well done!
