                                               -You become what you feed your mind –

”Mentoring is an opportunity for growth and development from both the mentor and mentee. Mentors help provide knowledge, guidance, and insight – but I have gained a wealth of knowledge from my mentees as well’’. –  Johnny Nesbit

This recognition is especially fitting because Johnny is a graduate of the 2008 UFSC MARK I – Minneapolis Leadership Program. While in college, the Omaha Chapter sponsored his participation in the leadership development program for college and high school students.  He was on the winning team! Johnny is a shining example of the success of the program designed to attract and support youth who are interested in the financial services industry.  He is currently a Commercial Credit Card Relationship Manager for First National Bank, Omaha, Nebraska.  In addition to supporting other mentoring programs, Johnny continues to pay it forward by supporting one of his mentees participation in the 2017 UFSC MARK I – Kansas City Leadership Program.
