“Being Kansas born and raised, I am very partial to the people of Kansas. They are honest, hardworking and self-sufficient. We ask very little of others and take care of our own. Our history---colorful as it is---tells our story through the many trials we have survived! Kansas is my home and there is no other place I would rather be.”
