Kansas City has always boasted of people who do more, give more and want more out of life. The 2015 Rising Stars are no different. It’s cliché, true, but they are definitely “in it to win it.” They fill their daytime hours with hard work for companies big and small and when the workday is finished, they are off to volunteer at any number of worthy organizations and charities throughout the metropolitan area. The Kansas City traditions of hard work, hard play and big hearts are certainly in good hands.
