Two City of Guymon Employees Graduate from the
Oklahoma Municipal League’s Leadership Training

GUYMON, OK –Two City of Guymon employees have graduated from the state’s municipal leadership class.
The Oklahoma Municipal League (OML) is proud to announce Elaine Campbell and Lavoana Martinez as a member of the 2016 graduating class of the Citizens Academy Leadership Training (CALT).
The ceremony was held at the Stillwater Community Center on Friday, February 12.
CALT is a 12 month leadership development program designed to engage citizens to become community leaders by learning valuable skills in the areas of teamwork, community assessment and planning, economic development and tourism, and community renewal.
Campbell and Martinez spent the past year traveling around the state to six host cities, developing their leadership skills while building valuable relationships with a diverse group of community leaders.
“This year’s class was an amazing group of leaders from around the state,” Executive Director Carolyn Stager said. “They bonded throughout the year and worked hard on their final class projects. Their dedication and commitment made this year’s CALT a great success!”
Campbell really enjoyed networking with and learning from the various members of the class. “Interacting with people in different types of work during the class sessions was very interesting, she said, “and I would recommend anyone who has a chance to participate to do so.”
Martinez touched on what their project was about.
“Our class project included writing a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for locating a dog food manufacturing company in our city,” she said, in relation to Guymon’s SPF Company. “I found within our five member team, each person has a unique perspective and different talent, and as we shared those as a team, we were able to successfully complete our project while building lasting relationships.”
“The CALT experience as a whole was very rewarding and educational,” Martinez said. “It allowed us to bond with professionals from both similar and different backgrounds.
The cities which hosted the class included Guthrie, Marlow, Woodward, McAlester, Muskogee, and Stillwater.
Guymon is set to host the new class for a second time in June of 2016.
The CALT Class IV would not be possible without the generous support of community partners, including Oklahoma Gas and Electric, Oklahoma Natural Gas, Public Service Company of Oklahoma and Phillips 66 as well as all the host cities.
CALT’s Class V is forming now. For more information and to apply for CALT Class V, visit or contact Cheryl Adams at (405) 528-7515,
