Ottumwa Leadership Academy to call new place home

The new Ottumwa Leadership Academy building is located at 113 E. Main St.

The Ottumwa Leadership Academy will soon be calling a new place home.

Located in the heart of downtown Ottumwa at 113 Main St., the Leadership Academy will soon be holding sessions out of the renovated building.

Additionally the space will be open to not only current participants and alumni but also to people that are wanting to come downtown to maybe pick up a newspaper or watch the news.

â??Oh we're very excited about our new building. We will be hopefully having it open by middle of June and we are gong to be on the Upstairs Downtown tour this weekend so that way people can come in and get a little bit of a glimpse of what it's like but the foundation, The Legacy Foundation bought this building with the purpose of supporting the Leadership Academy and supporting the revitalization of downtown,â?? said Hollie Tometich, Ottumwa Leadership Academy Director.

Tometich said she looks forward to what the future of the academy has to hold.

The next session of the Leadership Academy will start in September. Applications are currently being accepted. Click here for more information.
