Leadership, mental health discussed at Kimbro

Posted

Shiloh Baptist Church and Pastor Dr. Edward Collins held a City of Madisonville and Madison County Leadership Conference at the Kimbro Center Saturday to assist individuals with mental health questions and how they pertain to leadership.

Reverend Dr. Robert Gilmore Sr. and his wife, Professor Jacqueline Gilmore, were the conference’s dedicated lecturers.

“The lecture was centered around the current mental health crisis, and key aspects, focusing on proven concepts used in communication and psychological success,” said Joanne Green in a press release. “Their primary focal points were: to increase awareness towards individual, community and civic health during this 2020 period of increased anxiety, tension, stress and uncertainty; and to increase one’s ability to understand and identify means and techniques that can be utilized within an individuals home or community, that will help increase short and long term goals for individual and community success.”

Pastor Collins felt the need to raise awareness within communities and is dedicated to contributing solutions. The conference was designed to assist local leadership with guidance and resources, shall they need it.

Local leaders who attended the conference included Madison County Judge Tony Leago, Madisonville Mayor Bill Parton, Midway Mayor Brenda Ford, Superintendent Keith Smith, Crockett Mayor Ianthia Fisher and Bryan Commissioner Irma Cauley.

Collins called the conference a success and has plans to continue the event annually. He offered thanks to his wife, Sister Ocie Collins, the congregation at Shiloh Baptist Church, and special guests Robert and Jacqueline Gilmore, Mayor Fisher and Commissioner Cauley.
