MEET YLK27

Written By: Lynelle Fritzen


Leadership Kearney is proud to welcome back the 24 student representatives for the Youth Leadership Kearney Class 27. Participants have been selected by the Leadership Kearney Board of Directors from a blind application and recommendation process. The students are sponsored by local businesses and organizations to ensure that each student can participate in the program regardless of cost.


These youth were selected in July of 2020 but with the continued challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic have waited an additional year to be a part of this prestigious program. The Leadership Kearney Class 27 Youth Steering Committee including Megan Berry – Heartland Bank, Marketing Director, June Collison – Stamford Health, Clinical Learning Development Specialist, Nathan Dorsey – FMBO, Senior Advisor for Community Banking, Cody Krull – Jones Group, Producer, and Megan Telecky – University of Nebraska – Kearney, Facilities Management & Planning Business Manager worked diligently the past year to create a modified program that will provide this class of students the same experience while catering to their busy Senior schedules.


This program will not only focus on leadership and the community but will also include topics that will allow students learn more about themselves as they transition out of high school and onto their next chapter. The sessions will run July – February and include the traditional session types such as Orientation and State Government Day but will also include sessions days focusing on Quality of Life and Relationship Building.
