  • 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."

Albany State University, Chief Legal Affairs Officer

In addition to being the newest Chief Legal Affairs Officer for Albany State University, Rowena Daniels is a history maker. She may be the first African American attorney from her small hometown of Doerun, Georgia.


Growing up in southwest Georgia impacted her lifelong ambitions.


“I am most passionate about serving underrepresented populations and increasing their access to resources that will enable them to subsequently improve their standard of living,” she says. She is excited about the opportunity to contribute to the foundation of the new ASU through the consolidation process.


“This consolidation effort will offer greater opportunities for the citizens of this region of the state.”

Family, friends, and faith are important to Rowena. She has a special desire to inspire youth.


“As an African American female born and raised in rural southwest Georgia, I want to inspire youth to pursue their dreams and develop their gifts,” she says.  She wants to be known as someone who represents hope and perseverance in the face of adversity. Her sister plays a large role in her life.


“The twinkle in my eye is created by my sister,” she says. “Every day she reminds me to love unconditionally.”
