Every so often, I’ll go to my map of Kansas, put my finger on tiny Sublette, and trace the long route to Manhattan. And think about how many times Shalee Lehning’s parents, Steve and Jane, have made that drive through the Sunflower State.
Sheesh. It blows me away. It makes the two-plus hours it takes me to get to Manhattan from Overland Park seem like it’s just around the corner.
The Lehnings are used to lots of travel, though … one or the other or both have always been there for Shalee – in AAU ball, high school and now in her senior season at Kansas State.
