Rep. Katrina Shankland, D-Stevens Point, is one of 48 state policymakers from across the country selected as a Council of State Governments' Henry Toll Fellow for the Class of 2013.
The Toll Fellowship Program, named for CSG founder Henry Wolcott Toll, is one of the nation's premier leadership development programs for state government officials. Each year, Toll Fellows brings 48 officials from all three branches of state government to Lexington, Ky., for an intensive six-day, five-night "intellectual boot camp."
This year's program will be held Aug. 16-21.
"I believe early leadership training is critical for me as I grow as a leader, and this out-of-the-box, intellectual boot camp that awaits me will be both rewarding and edifying," Shankland said in a news release.
