Sauk Prairie is Stunning

When most people think of Sauk Prairie, the twin villages of Sauk City and Prairie du Sac, the plethora of outdoor adventures and eagles come to mind. But the area is also home to the American white pelican, and features a wealth of waterways and trail systems that allow visitors to find adventures naturally. Hikers, canoers and boaters flock to the region to enjoy a day on the water, traverse rugged trails or paddle to their heart’s content. Anglers are apt to call Sauk Prairie “a fisherman’s paradise,” thanks in part to the many varieties of fish found in the Wisconsin River and Lake Wisconsin. For bikers and hikers alike, The Great Sauk State Trail offers riders a 13.1-mile paved trail along the Wisconsin River, through the Sauk Prairie Recreation Area and on to Devil’s Lake State Park, the second most visited park in Wisconsin. Bikers and walkers can learn about the history and ecosystem of the area, and history and environmental signage and art sculptures add a unique flair to the experience of this trail system.

Nick Grays, State Bank of Cross Plains

What are the most challenging and rewarding aspects of your job and why?. Becoming a manager was not an obvious career track for me. So, what I’m most proud of all has to do with my growth in the role and my leadership style. First, I’m proud of myself for taking that risk and moving into management at all. Being a doer was a much more natural fit for me. I have always been a high-performing producer, so making the leap into management required some personal and professional growth. Looking back, I’m happy to think about what my approach to management has meant for those on my team. I have learned to measure my success by the success of others. Since I started, I have helped numerous employees get promotions and advance their careers. I’m proud to be part of their growth as well. The most rewarding part of my job is helping team members find their professional and personal purpose!
