Wallace State Ju- nior College, whose topic was "Commitment to Leadership in Educati~)n".

Members were en- couraged to provide leadership in meeting these seven criti- cat issues of education cited by the U.S. Office of Education: falling enrollment, attendance, colleges, growth in the elder- ly, pre-primary enrollment, teacher unions, and education of the labor force.
