The 2023 Edgar Fellows Program Executive Leadership Training Event Came to a close on August 10th, marking the 11th class since the program’s founding. This year’s roster included such names as State Senator Javier Cervantes, Decatur Mayor Julie Moore Wolfe, and Mayor of Springfield, Misty Buscher.
Every year, the Edgar program helps up to 40 emerging leaders receive lessons, networking opportunities, and training inspired by Edgar’s unique philosophy and leadership style.
The Edgar Fellow Program stresses problem solving over politics, compromise over competition, and real solutions over personal grand-standing. Fellows are nominated across political and cultural boundaries, and learn to work together to achieve real change.
Since it’s founding, the Edgar Fellow Program has helped over 400 fellows make meaningful change in the political sphere
