President & CEO
United Way of the Plains
Wichita has friendly people, a comfortable cost of living and good amenities for a community of our size. Its a good place to raise a family.
Wichita has much to offer companies looking for a great place to do business. We haven’t yet found the right mix to get them here but its imperative we do so.
You will find a wonderful quality of life. Wichita gives you the benefits of a big city without the big city problems. If you come from either the west or east coast you will be pleasantly shocked by how much money you will save by living here.
Wichita has become much more urban. The ease of transportation brought about by the Kellogg freeway and Highway 96 has united the city and diluted the old east/west divide I used to hear so much about.
Wichita has had a wealth of community leaders who have inspired. One of the best is Russ Meyer, CEO Retired of Cessna Aircraft. Classy, smart and diligent he kept pushing his company ahead and developing new products. He never gave up even in the worst of times for the aviation industry and his perseverance resulted in long term success.
