I’m a big believer in strategically developing leaders. I also believe that the demographics of a community’s leaders should reflect the demographics of the community. According to 2010 census data, Rogers’ population is 31.5% Hispanic or Latino (click here to check out the rest of the census data). The Hispanic population has been been gradually increasing …
