In 1991-92, the Flint Hills Regional Task Force recommended the development of a regional leadership program. As a result, the Flint Hills Regional Leadership Program (FHRLP) was formed in 1992 with the first class program year in 1993-94. Since then, more than 610 regional leaders have attended the sessions and graduated from the program.
To this day, FHRLP is a cooperative effort among Fort Riley, Kansas State University and Geary, Riley, Pottawatomie & Wabaunsee Counties, that identifies and motivates leaders in the area to ensure growth in the northern Flint Hills region.
The objective of the Flint Hills Regional Leadership Program is to identify and involve people in the area who have demonstrated leadership potential.
