Area residents participate in state agricultural leadership program

A portion of expenses were paid through grant funding for seven Northwest Kansas participants in Kansas Agriculture and Rural Leadership classes.

Graduates emerge from the two-year program with a network of rural contacts and resources or people to reach out to for exchange of information and support.

The program offers intensive training and travel for leaders in the state’s agriculture and rural communities to equip them to face a variety of environmental, economic and political challenges.
