Dr. Amy Williamson, an assistant professor of curriculum and instruction, will join the Leadership Texas Class of 2013, a year-long leadership development program.

Williamson said she was anonymously nominated and is only the third woman in San Angelo to participate in the program.

"This will be an opportunity for me to see other community service projects and ways that underprivileged members of the community are being served," Williamson said. "[It will help me] to get involved and find out what more I can do in the state and in my local community."

Leadership Texas is a program of Women's Resources that seeks to advance the power of leadership and legacy through programs that connect, inspire, empower and honor women.

Women's Resources considers it a privilege to offer influential women leaders new perspectives, opinions and validation on issues they might not otherwise encounter, O'Keefe-Mathis said.

According to CEO of Women's Resources Candace O'Keefe-Mathis, Williamson will be joined with 91 other women from around Texas who were competitively selected to participate in the program.

Participants are selected based on their public or private sector endeavors, volunteer experience and professional, educational, and personal backgrounds.

The program is designed to help women become better, more informed leaders in Texas communities, organizations, and corporations, O'Keefe-Mathis said.

 "It's a very interactive way to not only develop our leadership skills but to also get involved in a variety of communities throughout the state," Williamson said.

Participants will visit Dallas in March, Bryan/College Station in May, Galveston in September, and Austin in November.

The three-day seminars include listening to speakers, doing volunteer work, and leadership development.
