Maxine has lived in Leavenworth for 25 years. In 2005 she retired after lengthy careers with International Harvester (25 years) and Sprint (20 years) and has since poured herself into the work of the Leavenworth-Lansing Chamber and several other organizations. Her husband Tab is a retired Army officer and together they have sponsored more than 35 international military students in classes of the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College. She serves as the chair of the Leavenworth-Lansing Area Chamber’s “Operation International Committee,” and acts as the primary liaison between CGSC’s International Military Student Division and the local sponsors, ensuring that every international student is paired with a local family sponsor. She also oversees the “American Orientation Course” for the spouses and children of the international students for each new class.

In recent years, Maxine has been a tireless supporter of the CGSC Foundation’s “Celebration of International Friendship,” helping to raise sponsor support and drive attendance to this annual celebration of each new class of international officers at CGSC.

“Maxine is a powerhouse,” said Foundation CEO Doug Tystad. “She makes things happen and is key to our annual celebration. If someone finds one sponsor, Maxine finds two. – She sets the pace and makes the rest of us keep up. Our international officers and their families definitely have a champion in Maxine.”

We salute Maxine for her tireless contributions to the international officers and their families and to the CGSC Foundation mission in support of the College. – Maxine Hunter is our “Person of the Month” for August 2017.
