Dr. Bob Bush – 2021
We proudly announce that Dr. Bob Bush is our first ever Leadership Northwest Missouri Lifetime Achievement Award winner.
In December of 1999, a Healthy Communities Forum took place at Conception Abbey. Several community leaders from Northwest Missouri came together to brainstorm important regional issues. Dr. Bob Bush was the Director of Healthy Communities at that time and one of the issues that came out of this forum was the need for leadership development on a regional scale. The group concluded that while there are many outstanding local leadership development programs in our communities and an excellent statewide program, there were no programs that addressed leadership development on a regional level.
As a result, Leadership Northwest Missouri was created to bring together up-and-coming leaders from throughout the region.
Dr. Bob Bush was very instrumental in the creation and implementation of Leadership Northwest Missouri, now in its 21st Year. Bob is an alum of Leadership Northwest, having participated in the first class of 2001.
Twenty-one years later, we are going strong and we attribute much of our success to Bob’s dedication and commitment to what this organization could become. His vision carefully orchestrated the impact Leadership Northwest Missouri would have on Northwest Missouri.
