Manhattan, Kansas. Morgan Todd, Commercial Lending Assistant at Central National Bank Manhattan graduated from the Flint Hills Leadership Program on February 2, 2023. Todd has been with the bank 5 years.
“This was a great program to participate in,” said Todd. “I appreciated getting to know other regional leaders and making those connections. While we visited many local communities, my favorite was Junction City. I am a native of JC and was proud of the local knowledge, pride in the community, and overall progress of the city thus far.”
The FHRLP is geared toward the development of leadership skills within a subset of community leaders who work in a variety of fields. The goal is to motivate participants towards contributing to the growth and prosperity of the northern Flint Hills region. The program includes team building exercises, mediation and collaboration. The program concludes with a class project where leaders apply the skills they learn to a real-world project.
The 2022-23 class visited Rock Springs, Junction City for orientation and then continued with a session in a variety of Flint Hills locations including: Wamego, St Mary’s, Paxico, a Wabaunsee County historic site, Kansas State University, Fort Riley, the Manhattan Airport, Flint Hills Breadbasket, the Discovery Center and the state Capitol.
