TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-- They call themselves the, "Best Class Ever," the latest graduates of Leadership Greater Topeka received their graduation certificates.

Thirty-seven people were honored for completing the program put on by the Chamber of Commerce.

13's very own Operations Manager, Mike Turner was among the graduates identified for his outstanding leadership within the community.

Graduates participated in training courses that centered around quality of life and problem solving.

"If your solving an adaptive problem, then you would teach that man to fish, so that he could prepare himself for the rest of his life. And, I think that's the biggest lesson we learned here. I know our small group project we got some things in the works for the community that will hopefully be coming out in the next couple of years. We're really working together and we want this experience to last past the graduation of today," said Lonnie Walker, Jr., Graduate.
