Rural Leader Magazine is searching for 50 exemplary individuals who have made outstanding contributions to their communities. So often leaders in smaller communities are not recognized. Rural Leader 50 under 50 was developed with the purpose to recognize exclusively leaders who live and work in small communities. Many are dedicated to making things happen in their churches, businesses, organizations, and communities. They are unsung heroes who contribute much to the vitality and sustainability of their communities. Rural Leader 50 under 50 is an effort to demonstrate the value of those contributions. 2018 Call for Nominations coming soon.
