Kansas Commissioner of Education Dr. Randy Watson and Deputy Commissioner Dr. Brad Neuenswander will be at the Great Bend Events Center, 3111 10th St., from 1:30-3 p.m. Friday, July 30, as part of the Kansans Can Success Tour, hosted by Great Bend USD 428. Anyone from Great Bend and the surrounding communities is invited to join the conversation and hear updates on the future of education in Kansas.
The tour will launch July 26 and is coming to 50 locations across the state. It is a follow-up to the “Kansas Children. Kansas’ Future” community conversations tour that took place in 2015. The purpose of that tour was to bring together parents, educators, local school board members, higher education representatives, legislators and members of the business community to discuss the future they wanted for Kansas children and the role they wanted Kansas education to play in supporting that envisioned future.
