Chamber Congratulates Ron Fehr

MM - 1

One of the reasons Manhattan has been successful throughout its history is the close collaboration between the City of Manhattan, Kansas State University and the Manhattan business community. One of the central figures in making that work is Manhattan City Manager Ron Fehr.

Ron announced his plans for retirement last week. He will work until April. He has held that position for 24 years and has spent over 42 years with the City of Manhattan. From my perspective, he is the best city manager with whom I’ve had the opportunity to work. I am happy for him but sad for us.

Congratulations Ron and thank you on behalf of Manhattan’s business community and citizens. We are better for you being in a leadership role with our city. Good luck in retirement. The city commission has big shoes to fill for sure.

In other news, in case you missed it, the Chamber announced its 2024 Leadership Manhattan Class. Leadership Manhattan is an incredibly important venture of the Chamber in which we identify up-and-coming and existing leaders in the community and engage them in a five-month curriculum to learn more about the community and how they can make a positive impact.

This year’s group includes:  Jillian Bettinger, Creche; Peter Clark, Bayer Construction; Anani Eble, KSU Foundation; Joel Garver, The Alms Group; Sarah Hancock, New Boston Creative; Jason Hennigh, Central National Bank; Grant Hill, Kansas State University; Bailey Hinkle, WTC; Lindsay Lowe, Platinum and Company; Josh Michal, BHS Construction; Kassandra Moran, Stormont Vail Health; Stephanie Peterson, City of Manhattan; Tessie Riffel, KS StateBank; Kylie Shipley, Kansas Farm Bureau; Kody Songs, Manhattan Fire Department; Ashley Stalnaker, Florence Corporation; Emily Wehling, CivicPlus; Makenzie Woods, Back 9 Development; Jason Yoxall, The Trust Company; and Kashaya Zukowske, Meadowlark.
