    Lori Top, Principal with Burns & McDonnell, C-10 Mentor

    Lori Top, Principal with Burns & McDonnell, C-10 Mentor

    One of our initial goals with this podcast was to highlight the outstanding mentors in our C-10 Mentoring & Leadership program. We also use this podcast to highlight the guest speakers we have for our students and mentors during the weekly sessions.
    Well, in this week’s episode, we’re combining both of those, if you will. On Wednesday, March 31st, we did relatively short interviews with three of our mentors in front of our students on the main stage at the Musical Theater Heritage location at Crown Center in downtown Kansas City.
    This week, you’re going to hear one of those interviews, as we chat with third-year mentor Lori Top.
    Lori grew up in the Kansas City area, and after getting a degree in architecture from the University of Kansas, she went to work as a Design Manager for Starbucks Coffee out of Seattle. She was in charge of rebuilds of Starbuck stores throughout Canada. Eventually, she came back to Kansas City, where she is a principal and Aviation Projects Director for Burns & McDonnell.
    One thing to keep in mind as you hear those last couple of sentences and then listen to this conversation, as an architect, Lori has spent the majority of her career in male-dominated professions. She has a couple other characteristics that she’s open about in this conversation -- one has made her self-conscious, particularly in a male-dominated profession, and one has helped her throughout her career. You’ll hear both of those in this chat.
    Finally, some quick background. Lori was the third mentor we interviewed that night for our students, so there’s a reference or two to George and Fred, the other two mentors we interviewed. And Lori directed a lot of her answers to our students. But, frankly, whether you’re 14, 54 or 74, her answers can apply to all of us today.
    With all of that being said, we hope you enjoy it.

    Ed Bethea, HOF college golf coach

    Ed Bethea, HOF college golf coach

    Our goal each week with this podcast is to bring you guests who have great stories and have been successful leaders or mentors in various fields. Although we’ve had some well-known guests, there are so many outstanding leaders out there who have stories and principles that you and I can apply to our everyday lives. 
    That’s the case this week.
    We’re joined by longtime college golf coach Ed Bethea, who actually joined us for our C-10 Mentoring & Leadership session and spoke to our students for a few minutes this week. 
    Ed was the women’s golf coach at Dodge City Community College for 20 years -- actually helped start that program -- and had incredible success. The success that most of society uses to determine the success of college coaches, but also success in the number of student-athletes that he helped mentor, and still mentors today.
    You'll hear about that, as well as Ed's thoughts on working with students today, and he takes a swing at our Pregame Batting Practice.

    George Norton, Retired Army Officer

    If you’re a long-time listener of this podcast you know that one of our initial goals was to highlight some of the outstanding mentors in our C-10 Mentoring & Leadership program. We also use this podcast to highlight the guest speakers we have for our students and mentors during the weekly sessions. 
    Well, in this week’s episode, we’re combining both of those. On Wednesday, March 31st, we did relatively short interviews with three of our mentors in front of our students on the main stage at the Musical Theater Heritage location at Crown Center in downtown Kansas City. 
    This week, you’re going to hear one of those interviews, as Max Utsler, who’s been a co-host on this podcast, chats with mentor George Norton.  
    George has been a mentor in C-10 since our first year, and he’s served on a couple of committees for “C” You In The Major Leagues. George is very active in the Kansas City community. He has served -- or is serving -- on various nonprofit boards and committees, including Musical Theater Heritage and Kansas Public Radio. 
    George has led an interesting life. He was a career Army officer, which you’ll hear about during this conversation, including serving as the Public Information Officer for the Army in Berlin during the fall of the Berlin Wall. 
    But the cool thing about this chat is that it’s two old friends talking. Max was a professor at KU when George was working on his Master’s, and they developed a great friendship that’s spanned about 40 years.
