KU football coach Mark Mangino to meet with alumni from 4 SE Kansas counties

LAWRENCE -- University of Kansas football coach Mark Mangino will meet with KU alumni in southeast Kansas for a picnic at 6 p.m. Thursday, June 9, at the Memorial Auditorium and Convention Center in Pittsburg.

Henry Menghini, an Alumni Association volunteer from Pittsburg, is coordinating the picnic with the Kansas Alumni Association in Lawrence. Alumni from Labette, Cherokee, Crawford and Neosho counties have been invited. The cost is $10 per person.

Clint Bowen, a KU assistant football coach, and Alumni Association representatives Jill Simpson, director of chapter development, and Heath Peterson, director of Kansas chapters, also will attend the alumni picnic.

" Kansas is a priority for the association and KU," Peterson said. "KU alumni will see many more events like the picnic in southeast Kansas throughout the state, specifically events focusing on student recruitment and legislative advocacy for KU."

For more information, or to make reservations for the event, contact Peterson at (800) 584-2957.
