Deeds completes township program

Darl Deeds, Eagle Township trustee, recently graduated from the Ohio Township Association Leadership Academy. He was one of 12 people who received diplomas at the annual winter conference held Feb. 12-15 in Columbus.
Deeds has been a township trustee for 25 years. He is the first trustee in Hancock County to graduate from the academy. He completed all elective courses and the federal session to earn his diploma.
To complete the academy, participants must attend six of 10 elective courses and attend the federal session held at the township association’s Columbus office. All requirements must be met within three years of beginning the program.
Created in 2003 to provide education to elected officials, township staff, employees and appointed officials, the program is jointly presented by the Ohio Township Association, Ohio State University Extension, and Miami University.
