The 10-11 Feb 23 Hybrid RLI class was a success! We had a full class of participants who were engaged, shared their perspectives, and appreciated the updated curriculum. The graduates pictured are: Jason Buening, Kirk Crabtree, Emily Dixon, Diane Hinrichs-Toburen, Andy Hutchinson, Andrea Law and Ben Kohl, all from the Rotary Club of Manhattan Konza; Joseph Bast from the Rotary Club of Shawnee Mission; Mickey Edwards from the Rotary Club of Emporia; Linessa Frazier from the Rotary Club of Topeka; Daisy More from the Rotary Club of Gardner; Jeremy Poling from the Rotary Club of Topeka South; Vera Rogers from the Rotary Club of Overland Park South; Elizabeth Ward from the Rotary Club of Manhattan Noon and Blake Waters from the Rotary Club of Leavenworth.
 
The feedback we received was positive, and of course, we will continue to always gather participant comments. Thank you to the inaugural District 5710 Hybrid RLI volunteer facilitators:  Chuck Udell, Bill Musgrave, Tom Gray, Vernon Turner, and Debra and Patrick Schaub. What a positive impact your energy and expertise made!
 
A very special thanks to DG Stephanie who spent all day Saturday with us in Manhattan. So many folks helped to make this a purposeful and fun class. Let’s not forget Michelle Sink who coordinated with Scott Sieben at the Rockin’ K.  Scott loaned us a conference room in the K-State Foundation Building, and we had a great lunchbreak at the Rockin’ K.
 
DG Stephanie also presented a Paul Harris Fellow to Andrea Law from the Rotary Club of Manhattan Konza.  Andrea’s name was drawn for the award at the August TEAM Training Event. Congratulations, Andrea!!
 
We are continuing to meet with the 2023 PETS committee. This next training event is in Salina from 31 March-1 April.   PETS is designed to support you as you become a club president or leader. Time seems to fly--so register now! See you in Salina.
 
There are some seats available in the Kansas Leadership Center classes. See the info below!
 
Yours in Rotary,
DeEtte and Ellen
