  • 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."

Dougherty County Board of Commissioners, Solid Waste Director

As director for the Dougherty County Solid Waste Department, Scott Addison is playing a major role in helping future generations and the environment. Since 2002, when he began his career in the solid waste industry, he’s inspected, designed, performed construction management, designed landfill gas to energy projects, and operated landfills.


“I take pride in the fact that the work I do ensures the waste produced today will be safely disposed and will not adversely impact future generations or the environment,” says Scott. “I’m also proud to be a part of the first operational landfill gas to energy project in the US Military.”


Growing up in Walterboro, South Carolina led Scott to appreciate areas rich in history. Considered the lowcountry, Walterboro is abundant with wildlife and rivers, and the coast is only an hour away.

When he’s not working, Scott enjoys family and friends, grilling on his Big Green Egg, playing golf, and hunting and fishing. He’s been married to his best friend, Amy, for 12 years and they have two daughters.


“There is nothing I love more than hearing the laughs and seeing the love between my daughters,” he says.
