During the program’s 32-year history, more than 800 community members have participated in the program.

“All alumni are encouraged to stop by and take part in this great opportunity to reconnect,” said Shannon Gullickson, Talent Programs Director at Greater Mankato Growth, “this event has become an annual tradition.” Gullickson is also working with several volunteers on a short presentation on the history of the program, which was first known as Leadership Mankato Area (LMA).
