Paul Talley, Exec. Dir., Wilderness Trek Christian Camp, Ep. 87 This week we&apos;re chatting with Paul Talley, the Executive Director of Wilderness Trek in New Mexico, where nine C-10 students and four mentors are going to be spending a week on an immersive leadership hiking/camping trip. About 20 years ago, Talley was the youth minister at the Overland Park Church of Christ. That&apos;s where he and C-10 Podcast host Matt Fulks met and became fast friends. That gig in the Kansas City area sandwiched one in Colorado and another in Texas. He left ministry — at least formal church ministry — to become the Senior Business Operations Manager at Big Bear AggieTech, the largest privately-owned oilfield pumping unit service company in the Southwest. As the Senior Business Operations Manager, Paul oversaw 11 departments that managed over $12 million in annual spending and $5 million in assets.Finally, after about six years with Big Bear AggieTech, Paul took what might be one of his dream jobs, when he became the Executive Director of Wilderness Trek Christian Camp in New Mexico.This week, we chat about Paul being one of the grief ministers at Columbine High School and a therapeutic project he took on, about leadership lessons he&apos;s learned in ministry and business, and we chat about what our students and mentors can expect during their Wilderness Trek experience. LINKS:For more information about the C-10 Mentoring & Leadership program for high school students, visit our website.For information on the inaugural C YOU AT TOPGOLF fundraiser for C-10 on September 8, please go to the event page.To make a financial gift to give students life-changing one-on-one mentoring, visit our secure donation page.For all episodes of the C-10 podcast and ways you can listen, click here.If you’d like to make a comment, have a suggestion for a future guest, or your company would like to help underwrite this podcast, please visit our contact page.
C-10 Mentors: Stann, Eli, Andrew and Caroline, Ep. 86 After spending time with a few of our C-10 seniors in the previous episode, we wanted to give you a chance to hear from four of the mentors in the C-10 Mentoring & Leadership program. During one of our sessions in April, when a guest speaker had to postpone because of a family emergency, we called on these four mentors to talk on the stage in front of all of the students and other mentors. That&apos;s turned into this episode.You&apos;re going to hear from four of our mentors -- Stann Tate, Eli Medina, Andrew Kreiling and Caroline Odell -- as they were interviewed at Music Theater Heritage inside Crown Center. You&apos;ll hear them share about their experience in C-10, leadership lessons they&apos;ve taken away, and advice they&apos;d give to their 17-year-old selves. LINKS:For more information about the C-10 Mentoring & Leadership program for high school students, visit our website.For information on the inaugural C YOU AT TOPGOLF fundraiser for C-10 on September 8, please go to the event page.To make a financial gift to give students life-changing one-on-one mentoring, visit our secure donation page.For all episodes of the C-10 podcast and ways you can listen, click here.If you’d like to make a comment, have a suggestion for a future guest, or your company would like to help underwrite this podcast, please visit our contact page.
C-10 Seniors on how the program helped them succeed, Ep. 85 As we come to end of the 2021-22 school year, we wanted to give you a chance to hear from the seniors in our C-10 Mentoring & Leadership program. So, during one of our sessions in May, we invited next year&apos;s cohort, along with all other current C-10 students to hear interviews with our current seniors.That&apos;s turned into this episode.You&apos;re going to hear from four of our six seniors -- Sidney, Jameson, Naomi and Jacob -- as they were interviewed by C-10 curriculum chair Max Utsler in front of the rest of our students and mentors. You&apos;ll hear the students share about their experience in C-10, what they learned in the program, advice for younger students and much more. (Two seniors, Jayden and Naya, were unable to attend this session because of graduation commitments.) We open the episode with our guest host, C-10 mentor Al Wallace. LINKS:For more information about the C-10 Mentoring & Leadership program for high school students, visit our website.To make a financial gift to give students life-changing one-on-one mentoring, visit our secure donation page.For all episodes of the C-10 podcast and ways you can listen, click here.If you’d like to make a comment, have a suggestion for a future guest, or your company would like to help underwrite this podcast, please visit our contact page.
Larry Holley Rewind - Ep. 84 This is the 84th episode of the C-10 Podcast. Our first episode was about two years and a week ago, on May 14, 2020. Well, this week we’re doing something we’ve not done before in the previous 83 episodes covering two years and a week.We are going to replay an interview that we originally posted in December 2020 -- episode 32 to be exact. It may seem odd, considering you could go through our list of episodes, find this interview and, if you like, go back and listen to it. Likewise, we could simply post a link to episode 32. But this episode -- this guest -- deserves more than that.See, on May 12, 2022, the college basketball world lost one of its greatest coaches. Kansas City lost one of its kindest, best people. William Jewell College lost, perhaps, its greatest ambassador. And, frankly, we lost someone we considered a friend. Larry Holley.Coach Holley was one of the genuinely good people on this planet. He cared about his players, his family, his friends, and everyone else with whom he came in contact.He was a great friend to C You In The Major Leagues, including being instrumental in making sure that William Jewell College became one of our C-10 Leaders Scholarship partner schools. In case you don&apos;t know much about Coach Holley, his name became synonymous with William Jewell College. And vice versa. After all, Holley was the school’s basketball coach for 40 years, compiling 916 career wins, which made him the ninth-winningest coach in college basketball history at any level when he retired in 2019. He is the winningest coach in the state of Missouri. He earned 15 Coach of the Year awards, including the NAIA national coach of the year in 1996, and the 2018 Kansas City Sports Commission coach of the year. In 2019, he was selected as the &quot;Blue KC Coach with Character&quot; honoree for the month of April.In this episode, which we&apos;ve edited from the original to take out some Covid references, we talk about Holley&apos;s leadership background, how he and William Jewell have been intertwined, how he used to get the most out of his players, and he took a swing at our &quot;7 Questions.&quot;We hope you enjoy it, and see why we felt now was a good time to go into the archives for this special episode.LINKS:For more information about the C-10 Mentoring & Leadership program for high school students, visit our website.To make a financial gift to give students life-changing one-on-one mentoring, visit our secure donation page.For all episodes of the C-10 podcast and ways you can listen, click here.If you’d like to make a comment, have a suggestion for a future guest, or your company would like to help underwrite this podcast, please visit our contact page.
Lt. Col. Jacob Jones on CHARACTER, Ep. 83 This week’s guest is Marine pilot Lt. Col. Jacob Jones, who works with one of our C-10 mentors, Alan Epps….so you might hear a reference to Alan.Upon graduation from the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth and after two deployments as a reservist, Lt. Col. Jones was commissioned through the Officer Candidate Course in August 2004.During his career in the Marines, he’s been a pilot and an Aircraft Maintenance Officer. He was involved in Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom, and Operation Odyssey Lightning.In the summer of 2017, he transferred to Naval Postgraduate School (NPS), Monterey where he earned dual degrees, a Master’s of Science in Information Technology Management and a Master’s of Business Administration in Information Technology.Following Naval Postgraduate School, Lt. Col. Jones was assigned to the Manpower Information Systems Support Activity, where he currently serves as the Deputy Director.Among Lt. Col. Jones’ awards, he’s received three Navy and Marines Commendation Medals, the Navy and Marines Achievement Medal, and a Combat Action Ribbon.This chat with Lt. Col. Jones was recorded on Wednesday, May 11, 2022, at Music Theater Heritage in front of our C-10 Mentoring & Leadership students and mentors.Unlike most of those conversations, you&apos;ll hear our main interview, plus the students&apos; questions.We chat about Lt. Col. Jones&apos; career in the Marines, why he wanted to serve, and a near-death experience, but we lead things off with some pregame batting practice. LINKS:In case you&apos;re interested in previous podcasts that featured retired members of the military, there&apos;s this one with actor/comedian Rob Riggle, one with Ret. Gen. and former Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Richard Myers, plus this roundtable discussion that included Gen. Myers, and this one with George Norton.For more information about the C-10 Mentoring & Leadership program for high school students, visit our website.To make a financial gift to give students life-changing one-on-one mentoring, visit our secure donation page.For all episodes of the C-10 podcast and ways you can listen, click here.If you’d like to make a comment, have a suggestion for a future guest, or your company would like to help underwrite this podcast, please visit our contact page.
Denny Matthews on CONFIDENCE and how it's looked in the history of the Royals, Ep. 82 Denny Matthews has been the one consistent radio voice with the Kansas City Royals since their first year, 1969. For his first few years in the booth, Matthews, who grew up in central Illinois, worked with the legendary Buddy Blattner.When Blattner retired in 1974, Matthews became the &quot;voice&quot; of the Royals and has been the Royals&apos; top broadcaster ever since. From 1974 through the 1998 season – a stretch that includes some of the best seasons in the Royals&apos; history – Matthews teamed with Fred White. During their 25 seasons together, &quot;Denny and Fred&quot; became one of the most beloved broadcasting duos in Major League Baseball.In 1999, the Royals fired White and replaced him with Ryan Lefebvre. Despite a tremendous age difference, Denny and Ryan integrated their styles well and became popular with Royals fans.The Royals inducted Matthews into the Royals Hall of Fame in 2004. He was inducted into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame in 2005, and then he was presented with the Ford C. Frick Award by the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2007.This chat with Denny, who has become a major supporter of students and families in crisis through C You In The Major Leagues, was recorded on Wednesday, March 9, 2022, at Music Theater Heritage in front of our C-10 Mentoring & Leadership students and mentors.The C word with our C-10 students and mentors was CONFIDENCE, which, in the C You In The Major Leagues vernacular means someone who accepts constructive criticism, will try something new, has a positive attitude, and views self as a winner.This interview with Denny focuses largely on that word Confidence and how it pertains to managers and players Denny has been around since 1969. Frankly, we do not do a dive into a lot of anecdotes from Denny’s career. This is likely a side of Denny that you have not heard before.We lead things off with some pregame batting practice. LINKS:For more information about the C-10 Mentoring & Leadership program for high school students, visit our website.To make a financial gift to give students life-changing one-on-one mentoring, visit our secure donation page.For all episodes of the C-10 podcast and ways you can listen, click here.If you’d like to make a comment, have a suggestion for a future guest, or your company would like to help underwrite this podcast, please visit our contact page.
Jenny Housley, Sr. VP/Chief Marketing Officer at Blue KC, Ep. 81 This week’s “C” word is Competitor. In the C You In The Major Leagues vernacular, Competitor means someone who has a desire and ability to compete, has high expectations, is tough minded, and brings out the best in those around him or her. And this week’s guest certainly fits that. Jenny Housley is the Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer at Blue KC. She oversees the Medicare, Small Group, Mid-Market and Large Group sales teams, the sales operations team, commercial product development and customer experience. She is responsible for the retention of key customers and strategic oversight of the company’s new business development. Before joining Blue KC, she held multiple leadership roles at Lockton Companies including Executive Vice President, Producer where she was responsible for new business acquisition and retention of existing clients. She was recognized as one of Business Insurance Magazine’s, “Women to Watch” in 2009, and in 2021 she was one of the Women Who Mean Business selections by the Kansas City Business Journal.She is active in the Kansas City community with organizations ranging from Starlight Theater to the Greater Kansas City YMCA. And she happens to be a longtime friend of C-10 host Matt Fulks, which makes this a unique episode.Housley talks about that word Competitor and how it&apos;s helped her as a leader, why she shifted from one strong KC company to another, she takes a swing at our pregame batting practice, and much more.LINKS:For more info about the Blue KC Coaches with Character program, click here.We reference an episode with Christina Lively.

Phil Mahre, U.S. Skiing Legend, on Confidence, Ep. 80 This month’s “C” word, Confidence, and this week&apos;s guest go hand in hand. As a gold medalist and former professional athlete in a sport where the difference between winning and losing can be less than one-tenth of a second, confidence has to be there. In the C You In The Major Leagues vernacular, Confidence means someone who accepts constructive criticism, will try something new, has a positive attitude, and views self as a winner. For about a decade in the 1970s and ‘80s, Phil Mahre was one of the best alpine skiers in the world. In fact, he won 27 World Cup races during his career, which puts him fourth all-time among American skiers. And he won the overall World Cup title three consecutive years, 1981-83. Oh, and he won two Olympic medals -- a silver at Lake Placid in 1980 and a gold at the ‘84 Games in Sarajevo. (Maybe it&apos;s appropriate that this is episode 80 of the C-10 Podcast.)With the Olympics ending a few weeks ago and the World Cup skiing season ending a few days ago, we thought the timing was perfect to have him on. Mahre talks about his motivation in winning a gold medal in 1984, why he retired at 26, why breaking his leg (twice) was good for him, he takes a swing at our pregame batting practice, and much more.Joining host Matt Fulks this week are C-10 Curriculum Chair Max Utsler and C-10 student, Dawson. LINKS:Here&apos;s a great video from the &apos;84 Olympics, featuring Mahre&apos;s slalom run and, around the 2:45 mark, a feature that ABC did on Mahre. You can see that here.For more information about the C-10 Mentoring & Leadership program for high school students, visit our website.To make a financial gift to give students life-changing one-on-one mentoring, visit our secure donation page.For all episodes of the C-10 podcast and ways you can listen, click here.If you’d like to make a comment, have a suggestion for a future guest, or your company would like to help underwrite this podcast, please visit our contact page.
