2023 Employee of the Year – Brooke Harshaw

Brook Harshaw accepting 2023 Employee of the Year award from Mayor Peggy Dunn
Like many Leawood employees, Brooke has consistently demonstrated exceptional dedication, hard work, and a commitment to excellence throughout the year. Her contributions have not only played a pivotal role in the success of our team but have also set a high standard for professionalism and achievement that we strive for throughout the City of Leawood.

Throughout 2023, not only did Brooke maintain her great standing as a Firefighter,
Brooke took it upon herself to do many things outside of her normal day-to-day job:

  • She reached out to area colleges/universities, developed a presentation, shared her story and the benefits of working for the City to help aid in recruitment.
  • As a member of our Peer Support Team, Brooke serves as a trained observer and counselor to help those subjected to the various mental and physical stressors of public safety.
  • Brooke capitalized on her background and degree in education to redesign the curriculum of one of the Fire department’s community outreach programs of which Leawood Fire employees used to instruct 2,535 people, 1,858 of which were children, in October 2023.
  • She volunteered for water rescue, CPR and First-Aid, infant and car seat installation, and earned her paramedic license after completing 24-hour ambulance internships and classroom work.
  • Brooke also volunteered for the local Camp Fury program, a nationwide program started in Arizona that is designed to empower girls to consider careers in firefighting and law enforcement. Her contributions were recognized and she was asked to help with a much larger offering in Arizona in 2024 with the plan to undertake this all on her own, only simply asking for time off.

We are grateful to have Brooke as part of our City family, and we look forward to seeing her continued impact for many years to come. Please join us in congratulating Brooke for this well-deserved recognition!
