Additional sessions will focus on challenges and opportunities facing bankers and entrepreneurs in the state’s rural and urban areas and individual leadership skills.
“We are pleased that Sarah has been selected for the 2023 BLOK program,” said Kyle Russell, President of Citizens Bank of Kansas. “She will graduate from the BLOK program equipped with the skills and knowledge to take on leadership roles within the bank.“
