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 Rhys Marihugh.
Q: If your had the power to change anything, what would it be?
A: How divided we are as a nation.
Q: What is something that most people may not know about you?
A: My first name is actually Glenn.
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 we have all the businesses we are able to support at the moment.
Q:Where do you see yourself in ten years?
A: Living in Jewell County.
Q: What are some improvement you would like to see in Mankato in he future that would entice our youth to return?
A: What is there that we can do? The people that wanna stay already have it planned. And those that wanna stay like Jewell County the way it is. But for the sake of the question, I would say do more things to entice people to move back to start families. Because you want people to go out and experience the world to gain new ideas and to bring those ideas back.
Q: What is your favorite way to spend a Saturday?
A: Relaxing is my favorite thing to do on a Saturday.
