Julia Kauffman presents to the KSI group
The Uncommon Award
KSI Day at the K
We began our 100-day countdown to Ewing Kauffman's 100th birthday by celebrating together at Kauffman Scholars Day at the K. Julia Kauffman welcomed the scholars as the program marked its own century milestone by recording its first 100 college graduates and enrolling more than 600 Scholars in higher education institutions across the country.
In her remarks, Julia said, “I'm delighted because everywhere I go in the United States, sometimes out of the blue, someone will come up to me and say, ‘I'm a Kauffman kid.’ It's really rewarding to see a Kauffman program made a difference in someone’s life.”
Before the game, a battery of Kauffman Scholars teamed up to deliver the best ceremonial first pitch of the season.
