Kansas City, MO – Last April, Brent Stewart came to town to become President and CEO of the United Way of Greater Kansas City. Stewart is the first African American to head the United Way in Kansas City. But he's also the first permanent president since the Northland, Johnson County and the Kansas City agencies joined forces in a merger.
