Topeka, KS—Clayton Wealth Partners congratulates Barbara Duncan, CFP®, as a graduate of the Leadership Greater Topeka (LGT) Class of 2020.
Barbara is a Partner and Senior Wealth Advisor for the fee-only, full-time fiduciary financial planning firm in Topeka and Lawrence, Kansas. She joined 35 other community leaders to take part in Leadership Greater Topeka, which is now in its 38th year.
As a program of the Greater Topeka Partnership, LGT recruits local leaders to participate in the year-long training. Participants strengthen and expand leadership skills while also identifying opportunities to positively influence issues facing Topeka and the surrounding area.
“In place since 1984, Leadership Greater Topeka has more than 1,000 alumni with nearly 70% still living and active in the Topeka area,” the program website states. “Leadership Greater Topeka alumni are challenged to apply their talents throughout the community in volunteer, appointed and elected positions.”
As part of the program, the Class of 2020 attended eight daylong sessions and a retreat.
“LGT gave me the opportunity to work with a diverse group of Topeka professionals while learning more about our community,” Barbara said. “The program challenged me to expand my leadership skills to become not just a better business leader but also a better leader in my community.”
Clint Patty, Managing Partner for Clayton Wealth Partners, said the team is proud of Barbara’s accomplishment.
“As a Partner and Senior Wealth Advisor at our firm, Barbara already excels in resolving difficult and complex problems,” Clint said. “I know that Topeka will benefit from her participation in the Leadership Greater Topeka program as she continues to evolve as a rising leader in our community.”
A graduation ceremony for the Leadership Greater Topeka Class of 2020 will be held at a later date due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
