GARDEN CITY — Governor Kristi Noem of South Dakota has accepted an invitation to be the keynote speaker at the Mid-Year Conference of the Kansas Independent Oil and Gas Association, said Cecil O’Brate, president of American Warrior Inc., an oil and gas producer with headquarters in Garden City.
The KIOGA Mid-Year Annual Dinner will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 15, at the Clarion Inn & Conference Center, 1911 E. Kansas Avenue in Garden City.
“Governor Noem has provided exceptional leadership for South Dakota – and the entire country – as a state representative, a U.S. Congresswoman, and now governor,” said O’Brate. “Her rural roots, strong work ethic, and support of free enterprise mirror our Kansas values, and we’re excited to hear her vision.”
“We are very excited to have Gov. Noem visit our state and share her perspectives on the current state of the oil and gas sector as well as her view on the future of the country,” said Ed Cross, president of KIOGA.
