FHRLP executive directorMr. Jack Lindquist

Jack Lindquist served Dickinson County as a K-State Cooperative Extension 4-H Agent from 1981-83 and Douglas County as an Agricultural Agent from 1983-90. From 1990 to 2013, Lindquist served as director of Agricultural and Rural Leadership Development Programs at K-State on contract with the Kansas Agriculture and Rural Leadership Program. In this role Lindquist coordinated the intensive training and international study tours for 330 leaders from 102 Kansas Counties. From 2013 through 2016 he served the organization as the KARL Graduate Program director.

Lindquist said, “It was a natural step for me to stay engaged in leadership development where we live after retirement from K-State. The Flint Hills Regional Leadership Program is based in the fastest growing region of our state. We have never had more opportunity or greater need for well informed, collaborative, decisive leadership. That is possible through 21st Century proactive servant leadership development.
