HAYS, KS -- Former Kansas Regent Harry Craig and ex-Kansas legislator Phill Kline will speak at a Leadership Dinner at 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 12, in the Memorial Union of Fort Hays State University.
The dinner is sponsored by the FHSU Student Government Association, the Leadership Studies Association and FHSU President Edward H. Hammond.
Craig will discuss inspirational leadership and how it can be incorporated into communities, organizations and personal lives. Craig, who lives in Topeka, serves as chief executive officer of Martin Tractor Company. He has worked with business people across the nation to incorporate servant leadership into corporations and small businesses. Craig is currently working with the Sectarian Foundation to bring new leadership models into small businesses and communities.
Former State Rep. Phill Kline, Shawnee, was first elected to the Kansas House of Representatives in 1992. The state's developmentally disabled community and the Kansas Community Mental Health Centers voted Kline as their 1999 Kansas Legislator of the Year and he was named outstanding legislator by the Kansas Taxpayers Network for three consecutive years.
He ran for the U.S. Third District congressional seat in 2000. Kline is considering whether to enter the race for Kansas attorney general race or try again for the Third District congressional seat in 2002.
"The Leadership Dinner is an excellent opportunity for students, administration and the community to learn about leadership and how to successfully incorporate the servant leadership model into our university, community and state," said Daron Jamison, FHSU student body president.
The event is open to anyone in the community. Cost for the evening (meal included) will be $10 for adults and $6 for FHSU students. To purchase a ticket, visit the Student Service Desk in the FHSU Memorial Union or call the Student Government Office at (785) 628-5311.
