Luke has attended almost every Big Kansas Road Trip and enjoys exploring Kansas by way of gravel biking, food, and breweries.  Luke says that “the biggest challenge in rural Kansas is building capacity for those who want to positively improve their quality of life. Part of that is showing people why rural is a worthwhile cause and that its culture matters.” He is excited for the Kansas Sampler Foundation to convene and leverage its networks for new creative solutions in rural Kansas while allowing new connections to flourish.
