The Mankato, KS Chamber of Commerce took on the Senior Spotlight project for the 2018-2019 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 Jackson Chance.

A: I would change the way some people think and treat others.
Q: WHAT IS SOMETHING THAT MOST PEOPLE MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU?
A: Most people don’t know that I like shopping, especially for western gear.
Q: IN TERMS OF BUSINESSES (SERVICE, RETAIL, ETC.) WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE IS MISSING IN MANKATO THAT WOULD BENEFIT THE PEOPLE OF JEWELL COUNTY?
