Editorial: Optimist leader

Wednesday, December 19, 2007

Jackson resident Don Sievers was recently named president of Optimist International, a service organization with 3,200 clubs and 105,000 members around the world.

Sievers started Associated Sheet Metal Inc., a commercial and industrial heating-ventilation-air conditioning company in Jackson. That management and leadership experience should serve Sievers well in his new post.

Sievers is the second area resident to be named president of the international organization. Charles Wiles of Cape Girardeau was president from 1993 to 1994.

This nomination was quite an honor for Sievers and to the Jackson Optimist Club as well. It serves as another example of the fine leadership found in Southeast Missouri.
