  • 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."

Charlice Noble-Jones
Instructional Specialist, Dougherty County School System

A former educator, Charlice Noble-Jones is now involved in Dougherty County School System’s implementation of its 1:1 Technology Initiative – an ambitious program that will see personal technology devices in the hands of every student by the end of the year. As an instructional specialist, Noble-Jones will oversee the technology rollout to two schools. She says she excited to be able to help the system continue its march towards becoming one of the largest 1:1 systems in the state.

When she isn’t molding the minds of children, Noble-Jones is busy developing a personal business venture with her business partner which she hopes to have up and running this fall.

A member of the Albany Area YMCA, Noble-Jones says she and her son spend a lot of time trying to become more healthy at the gym. She’s also helping the local Pop Warner organization as a scholastic coordinator and she says that just loves to live life. It’s about living not merely existing, she says.

A native of Albany, Noble-Jones says she may have a slight addiction to Maryland Blue Crabs and that she really wants to be remembered for living, laughing, loving and working and for helping to make the community a better place for future generations.

The mom to two boys, Noble-Jones is also the daughter of a Leadership Albany alumni.
