SIKESTON -- Another group of young professionals in the area has graduated from the Leadership Sikeston program, and is ready to make a mark in the community.

Sixteen were a part of the 2012 class, and received their diplomas Thursday at the monthly Sikeston Area Chamber of Commerce luncheon.

Two class members also spoke about their experience in the six-month program.

Zach Fayette noted that while he grew up in Sikeston, the program was perfect for him after living and working outside of the area for several years.
