Chancellor to honor Kiowa County students

More Information

LAWRENCE — University of Kansas Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little will return to Greensburg on April 25 to speak at the Kiowa County High School Honor Roll Banquet. The event begins at 6:30 p.m.

The event honors outstanding academic achievements by high school students from Greensburg, Haviland, Mullinville and surrounding areas. It will be held in Kiowa County’s new school building, 710 S. Main. The school was constructed after the May 2007 tornado with energy efficient features that earned it a LEED Platinum rating, the highest sustainability rating a building can receive.

Gray-Little first visited Greensburg in October 2009, soon after becoming KU chancellor. A tour of the city included a stop at the 5.4.7 Arts Center, built by KU architecture students in the Studio 804 program. The arts center was the first LEED Platinum building in Kansas.

The University of Kansas is a major comprehensive research and teaching university. University Relations is the central public relations office for KU's Lawrence campus.
