Many people do not know that The Leadership Center is a 501(3)(c) non-profit owned and operated by the Nebraska Vocational Agricultural Foundation (NVAF.) The NVAF is a board of directors made up of 10 Nebraska Agricultural Education teachers and 5 Nebraska business people in the areas of banking, law, accounting, as well as a business person from Lincoln and one from Omaha. While our board of directors are quite active with all the happenings of The Leadership Center, they are often behind the scenes and people don’t know them beyond name. So we are going to take some blog space to introduce to you our board members. We have asked each of them to answer a set of questions.
In continuing our “Meet the Board” blog series, I am excited to introduce the banker on our board.
Name: Greg Ashby
Job & Location: Banker, Vice President, Five Points Bank, Grand Island, NE
NVAF Board Position and how long have you served on the board? At Large Banker. I have served for 6 years.
Favorite thing about TLC: The campus type atmosphere provided to the youth of NE who are interested in agriculture.
Why do you like serving on the board or what you are looking forward to doing while serving on the board? My number one goal is to assist in any way possible to help the NVAF reach and sustain a financially stable position and one that provides even more educational opportunities for the future agricultural leaders of our state.
