Schuylkill Chamber of Commerce finance and administrative director Kelly Preneta recently graduated from the US Chamber of Commerce Foundation premier business leadership program.

Chamber of Commerce’s Business Leads Fellowship Program “trains and equips leaders from state and local chambers of commerce, economic development agencies, and statewide trade associations with resources, access to experts, and a network of peers to build their capacity to address the most pressing education and workforce challenges,” according to information in a news release.

Preneta graduated with 25 other state and local business leaders. The Business Leads Fellowship Program has a year-long virtual course and ended with an in-person meeting in Palm Springs, California.

“As clearly displayed throughout this program, state and local leaders know better than anyone the critical link between education and economic development,” Cheryl Oldham, senior vice president of the Center for Education and Workforce, says in a statement. “Not only did the Fellows gain a network of peers and experts in the field, but the program is also designed to help these leaders find opportunities to develop initiatives that will continue to advance the growth of their local economy and put education policy into practice.”
