KSHE Update
Greetings KSHE Members,

Hard to believe it is 2018 already and another year of education and professional development opportunities are in the works. Your KSHE board met in December to plan out next year’s activities. Some very exciting, new, and enhanced education is planned for 2018. Following is an outline of this year’s activities:
I would like to thank all of the KSHE members who voted in the ASHE elections. It is very important to participate and have your voice heard. I would also like to thank all who voted for me and I am humbled at the opportunity to serve you. I will work my hardest to make sure that District 3 Chapter's voices are heard at ASHE and to bring value to the KSHE affiliation. I encourage fellow members to get involved in KSHE and ASHE. The time you invest in both organizations will make a significant difference in both your professional and personal lives. Thank you all for the opportunity to serve you!
