Refueling Wichita: Mission Wichita 2020
W has the privilege to announce the 2020 class of Mission Wichita. Mission Wichita, presented by Credit Union of America, is a program designed to establish relationships between young high achieving Airmen and young professionals. These types of connections not only drive economic growth and pride in Wichita, but improve the overall quality of life.
Mission Wichita is a joint program between W, McConnell Air Force Base, Friends of McConnell, and other community partners including our presenting sponsor, Credit Union of America, as well as our lunch sponsor, Hutton.
Participants experience Wichita through a unique lens, with the intentions of demystifying McConnell Air Force Base, the Wichita business community, and local government. This program will expose Airmen to many of Wichita’s quality of place attributes. Six bi-weekly sessions will take participants into spaces that few are allowed.
Eleven Airmen and eleven young professionals were selected based on their remarkable qualifications and engagement within the Wichita area.
