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 Chase Slate.
Q: If your had the power to change anything, what would it be?
A: I would like to see a change in the educational system. It is more based off of grades and not on what you actually learn.
Q: What is something that most people may not know about you?
A:I love going to school and seeing my friends and learning new things everyday.
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: It would be nice to see more businesses dealing with entertainment for the younger people. A bowling alley or a trampoline park would be nice.
Q:Where do you see yourself in ten years?
A: I see myself working in a rural area and continuing the hobbies I love.
Q: What are some improvement you would like to see in Mankato in the future that would entice our youth to return?
A: I would like to see more businesses so that people could come back and work. More businesses that provide entertainment for a younger audience would also help.
Q: What is your favorite way to spend a Saturday?
A: Going hunting, fishing, or golfing with a good group of friends.
