DEFINITION: Prompted to act towards a goal.
Ryan Bradley is an American figure skater that is known for his humor, love of learning, and ability to fly – over the ice. He is one of only a few U.S. men to land two quadruple jumps in a free skate competition and recently led his team, Bradley’s Brawlers, with a lot of jovial fun and smiles to a win at the 2017 Aerial Figure Skating Challenge.
Today he shares his love of the sport by coaching at the Broadmoor Skating Club and Colorado Springs World Arena. An avid reader and lover of learning, he also studies business at the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs and aspires to earn a graduate degree at the University of Kansas.

What does the road to a dream look like? If it’s a sports dream, there are early, dark mornings – lacing up shoes before any lights flicker on the block. There are late nights, pushing past physical and emotional limits, even when it seems out of reach. There are countless sacrifices at every turn. And there are often amazing mentors and coaches, right there to say, “We don’t quit. Not today.”
Built in 1873, the Buchanan County Courthouse, with its majestic white pointed dome, stands as an architectural icon during the day and casts a warm stately glow over downtown St. Joseph in the evening light.
Most people who visit the Black Archives Museum of St. Joseph say almost the same thing. It’s “wow,” and usually this is followed by a lot of thoughtful silence.
What does it take to become a local legend in sandwich-making? The recipe calls for a family history of food know-how, plus a generous amount of business savvy.
