County Spotlight

Williamson County

Williamson County is located just south of Nashville and is home to more than 205,000 residents. Williamson County takes pride in their high-performing schools, rolling hills landscape, strong business climate, and wide range of restaurants and retail choices.


The LMT program takes leaders on a journey through the ten-county region, with tours and discussions with local leaders and alumni, helping participants understand the unique attributes and contributions of each county.   The program also provides an informal platform for self-discovery as leaders learn more about themselves and each other as leaders.


LMT classmates form life-long friendships and connections that help them and their companies to more effectively navigate the local and regional landscape.   Alumni continue stay in touch through social and educational events and special projects, sustaining regional understanding and cooperation.


Each LMT class and nearly 600 people in our alumni network make up a powerful cadre of community and business leaders who can help mobilize any community service effort, whether it is the current year’s class service project or a rollout of multi-county efforts like the Buddy Bench.
