Southern Leavenworth County Leadership Development is taking applications for 2017-18. The organization, which is sponsored by the Basehor Chamber of Commerce and First State Bank and Trust, offers classes by academic year. The class generally meets the second Wednesday of each month from September through April, with a final project presentation in April and a graduation luncheon in May.
For one winter while she was growing up in Leavenworth, Sharon Tuttle’s family had no income while her father recovered from open-heart surgery.
