Leadership and Illustration
Recently I graduated from Leadership Greater Topeka. Throughout this class we learned what it takes to be a leader in our community. We visited many areas of Topeka, went to many different businesses, and heard from many individuals and organizations making a difference all across the city. This eye-opening experience was beneficial to me on many levels. I realized that I have to get involved to help facilitate change, I can not wait for others to do it. I learned that my classmates are amazing people with the same desire to make Topeka the best city in the country. My classmates are willing to serve others, give of their time and money, and pitch in on projects that impact the community.
This was the 31st class of LGT and I was honored to be a part of it. Wherever you live, if you get a chance, try to be part of a leadership class in your city. It will profoundly change the way you look at your city and the people that live there.
In the image of 12 of my 36 classmates I tried to convey a sense of direction, that all of us are headed in the same direction. We may not agree on everything (and that’s ok), we all want the best for each other and our community as a whole.
