Beginning in 2009, Flint Hills Resources was the primary sponsor for the Fort Leavenworth Ethics Symposium, an annual event developed by the CGSC Foundation to assist the Command and General Staff College in its leadership instruction. They supported the first three years of that program which is still being conducted today. More recently, the company has entered discussions with the Foundation to support other leader programs.
“Flint Hills’ support of the annual ethics symposium was the driving force for that program in its first few years,” said Foundation CEO Doug Tystad. “We’re very grateful that they continued that support and now, working with Brad Razook, the CEO, we’re looking at other opportunities for leaders programs at CGSC where their support will be just as critical.”
Tystad hosted Razook on a visit to Fort Leavenworth last year to show him more of the College and how the Foundation supports its mission. They met again in the fall to continue their discussions.
“Leadership development in civilian corporations is a difficult, but important task, so our conversations with Brad have been centered around leader development issues and how the Army does it,” said Foundation CEO Doug Tystad. “We look forward to furthering our partnership opportunities with Flint Hills for a mutual benefit.”
The CGSC Foundation is proud to spotlight Flint Hills Resources for their support of the Foundation and the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College.
