“It was great to host Leadership Cushing at VMI and meet Cushing’s emerging leaders. As a leader it is always good to know others and how you may be able to assist one another along life’s journey. At VMI, we take pride in everything we do and want to help Cushing continue to progress as a thriving community. It was a pleasure to display to tomorrow’s leaders what we do at VMI and what we have to offer,”
