The Mankato, KS Chamber of Commerce took on the Senior Spotlight project for the 2017-2018 school year in an effort to encourage students to consider returning to Jewell County in the future and to ask important questions about how they think our communities could be improved. For our community to grow in the future, we need to listen to what our young people have to say. Please enjoy this week's Senior Spotlight Interview with Brady Jeffery.
Q: If your had the power to change anything, what would it be?
A: I wish that teachers were values more. I wish that more people understood how much teachers matter and saw what they do for us.
Q: What is something that most people may not know about you?
A: I always have to be doing something. While I’m in class, I will constantly either be shaking me leg, or messing with my pencil to keep myself busy.
Q: In terms of businesses (Service, retail, etc.) what do you believe is missing in Mankato that would benefit the people of Jewell County?
A: I think it would help a lot of people out if there was an all purpose store in the area. For example, a Wal-Mart or a general purpose store.
Q:Where do you see yourself in ten years?
A: In ten years, I see myself teaching an elementary class with a loving wife and family.
Q: What are some improvement you would like to see in Mankato in the future that would entice our youth to return?
A: More job availability. If there were more jobs available then more people would live in this area and come back to where they came from.
Q: What is your favorite way to spend a Saturday?
A: At home with my family watching a movie, or doing something with my friends.
