This year they also supported our leadership programs. It’s an honor that a firm such as this chooses to support our mission and even goes so far as to host our quarterly board meetings and other events in their downtown Kansas City offices.”
Cox added in the interest of full disclosure that the chair of the CGSC Foundation board of trustees, Mike Hockley, is a partner with Spencer Fane.
