Celebrate Kansas City Centurions 2019



A glimpse at the local leadership class and their next generation of denizens . . .

Class of 2019:



What they're all about . . .

"Since 1976, the two-year leadership development program has prepared greater Kansas City’s emerging leaders for roles including judges, CEOs, and nonprofit executives. Centurions is an unequaled training ground for future Kansas City leaders."

It's an impressive title and program to be sure, even if the name-check for glory wrapped in antiquity seems a bit much.

Posted so that our readers can learn about who really runs this town in a manner more effective than just complaining on the Internets.

You decide . . .

Yes, I'm sure these brave souls will take a stand against the incompetence and corruption ruining the city.

Not really, though. Empty suits with a stick-on resume enhancement.

Successful people with good careers need yet more positive recognition.

Pardon me, but I couldn't help but notice that women comprise a statistically significant majority of this class.

How is this not gender discrimination?

And why am I certain that if the roles were reversed, social justice warriors would be pointing out the "dominant patriarchal" power conspiracy?

I was in the Class of 79. And published and co-authored the single most memorable document ever for Centurions: the legendary and never equalled "84 in '84", (84 ways to make Kansas City better in 1984.)

Was distributed in 18000 copies of Kansas City Business Journal.
