RLI- Lee County was formed in August 2012, after a group of Lee County residents completed the Rural Leadership Institute at Francis Marion University. Through this training at Francis Marion University, the participants learned how to develop a sustainable project and program which will benefit their rural community. The curriculum of RLI emphasizes on organizational management, budgeting and finance, problem solving, intergovernmental relations, and other topics specifically tailored to the needs of rural communities.
Currently, the Board of Directors are working to form a Boys and Girls Club in Lee County. This will help serve children after school.
Another project RLI is working on is the Transporation Penny. On November 6, 2012, voters will have the opportunity to vote yes or no for the Transportation Penny Sales Tax. The RLI Group is actvely promoting this in Lee County. To learn more about the Transportation Penny, please click here.
