John Hunter Announces Retirement 
  The Heartland Visioning management committee announced this month that executive director John Hunter will retire in June 2017.  The Management Committee, in collaboration with the Greater Topeka Chamber of Commerce, will search for a replacement.   Hunter plans to remain at Heartland Visioning until a new executive director assumes the post.
Under Hunter's leadership, the community has increasingly worked together to address critical issues including community pride, downtown redevelopment, and overall quality of life for the greater Topeka area. 
"John has been a visionary and steadfast supporter of working with people from across our community to make our community the best it can be," said Roger Underwood, current chair for the Heartland Visioning Management Committee.  "He understood that the only way to increase the quality of life was to bring together people from all walks of life.  John worked with volunteers to bring about an open and inclusive environment to the work of Heartland Visioning."
