One of the major breakthroughs that has happened recently in Wichita is that it has become aware of itself.
So says Joe Schremmer, a Wichita lawyer who grew up in Derby and one of a dozen WBJ Emerging Leaders who participated in a roundtable discussion on Thursday.
“I’m a little excited about how we have become conscious of ourselves,” Schremmer said. “I’ve perceived in the last few years that we’ve started to talk about Wichita almost from a third-party perspective. We’re in some kind of evaluative process that I don’t recall happening in the past.”
Schremmer, who works for Depew Gillen Rathbun & McInteer, said the self-reflection can be depressing at times, but he thinks the awareness will ultimately improve the community.
