  • LA was one of the greatest things in my development as a leader and a new person in the Community. It challenged me about what I had assumed about myself and why I needed the others that were in this class with me! The number of times I have called on my classmates since my May graduation is too many to recall. EVERY one in that room I now consider leaders that will attack the issues that must be addressed!

  • Leadership Albany is among the most comprehensive community leadership training programs available from anywhere I have worked and lived. The curriculum provides a thorough education about community government, industry, services, business, and education. Program class members are a foundation of professional networking that fosters relationships throughout the community."

  • "Leadership Albany empowers relationships, networking and learning beyond the "typical" leadership courses. I was probably one of the few people that was "familiar" with each of subject days; but there was not one day that I did not walk away with greater understanding. This program provides a pathway to connect deeper in the community and provides fundamental skills that are transferable to any environment or any locale."

Financial Advisor, SunTrust Investment Services

July just might be Jeretha Peters’ favorite month... all because of ice cream.


“I think one of the best things President Ronald Reagan did during his administration was set aside the entire month of July as National Ice Cream month,” says the Savannah native who admits it would be near impossible for her to give up the cold treat.  “I simply enjoy ice cream.”


As a financial advisor with Suntrust Investment Services, Jeretha also enjoys developing strategies for clients to help with financial issues. “I’m most passionate about helping people,” she says. “God has blessed me and my family, and I want to be a difference in the lives of others just as I have been blessed by people during my journey as a mother, advisor, and friend


When she’s not working, Jeretha enjoys quiet time and a good puzzle. Her daughters are her motivation for all she does.


“And I can’t forget my canine daughter, Tiffany,” Jeretha adds. “She affectionately greets me every day when I get home.”
