Freedom’s Frontier National Heritage Area would like to honor former Board Chair, Grant Glenn, for his service in helping promote and preserve this history of our communities.

During his time as chair, Grant pushed FFNHA to new levels that will serve the heritage area for years to come. His accomplishments include but are not limited to:
  • Creating the Project Success Committee, which oversaw development and implementation of the Freedom’s Frontier APP
  • Hiring of an Associate Director
  • Using technology for virtual meetings and presentations to increase attendance/participation.
  • Developing a Discussion Grant, to encourage partners to provide learning opportunities and discussion on equal justice issues within their communities
  • Establishing an Equal Justice Learning Project for Trustees
  • Providing financial support to KC Race Project, which provides programming for children on equal justice issues
  • Ensuring ongoing substantial efforts by trustees and staff towards achieving reauthorization and educating legislators and others about National Heritage Areas
Upon his retirement, FFNHA welcomes Kevin Wood as his successor.
FFNHA will continue Grant’s legacy to bring tourism and educational opportunities to the heritage area and will always appreciate his contributions.
