Daniel Kraus selected as 2019-2020 Millstone Fellow

December 12, 2019

Danny Kraus, an associate in Thompson Coburn's Real Estate group, has been named a Millstone Fellow, a program under the auspices of the Jewish Federation of St. Louis. The Millstone Fellowship is a select leadership program for emerging and established leaders in the St. Louis Jewish Community. The Millstone Fellowship was endowed by firm client Robert Millstone nearly a decade ago.

This 8-month program is a collaborative, community-building initiative that brings together young Jewish business or community leaders from the St. Louis community to network, encounter new ideas, confront community challenges and establish opportunities for growth through the leadership program, which is led by various leadership speakers brought in from around the world.

Danny is part of the 7th cohort, which is set to end in April 2020. Upon completion of the program, it is intended that fellows then move on to leadership roles on the boards of organizations in the community.

General topics that the program will follow will include:

  • Creating Community

  • Social Entrepreneurship

  • Leadership Coaching

  • Leadership and Decision Making

  • Creating a religious identity in America and connection around the world

  • Appreciating Diversity

  • Inspiring Action
