Rod Atkins and Carrie Shaeffer will join 33 others in the Class of 2007.

The 10 month program goes in depth on current issues facing Virginia. Once a month, they travel to a different area of the state and meet with local leaders to discuss problems in that region.

“We were able to talk about issues that were very close to me and very passionate with people who disagreed vehemently, but we did it in a social manner and a civic manner,” 2005 graduate, Mary Loose DeViney.

The late sister of Katie Couric, Emily was a member of the first Political Leaders Program in 1993.
