Twenty-four people have been named 2020 Bush Fellows, including Dr. Meghan Curry O’Connell of Elk Point.

The Bush Fellowship is an investment in individuals that helps them develop the skills, attributes and relationships they need to become more effective, equitable leaders who can drive change in their communities and region as a whole. It is distinctive in its flexibility, allowing Fellows to articulate what they need to become more effective and agile leaders.

“The Bush Foundation believes that strong and equitable leaders are necessary for our communities to be places where every person can thrive,” Leadership Programs Director Anita Patel said. “These 24 Fellows have demonstrated tremendous capacity to lead change, and we believe in their potential to make an even greater difference.”
