Fort Riley presents K-State Division of Continuing Education with certificate of appreciation for seminars

Tuesday, September 4, 2007

MANHATTAN -- Fort Riley management employees recently presented Kansas State University's Division of Continuing Education with a certificate of appreciation for offering a series of seminars on leadership and change management to Fort Riley civilian employees.

The Division of Continuing Education worked with Fort Riley staff and K-State faculty to plan and develop the Fort Riley Garrison Professional Development Seminar Series. The monthly seminars were offered from April through August to coincide with changes in civilian personnel management by the U.S. Army.

The seminars focused on leadership and change, mid-year appraisals, conflict management, good communication and change in management. David Stewart, assistant dean of the Division of Continuing Education, accepted the certificate on behalf of K-State. The certificate was presented by Col. Richard Piscal, garrison commander.

"It has been a pleasure to work with the Workforce Development Office at Fort Riley and with K-State faculty to plan and present the seminars," Stewart said. "This is a continuation of the positive working relationships that we have enjoyed with Fort Riley over many years."

Seminar instructors included K-State's Kris Boone, head of the department of communications; Richard Baker, news director at the K-State Radio Network, a part of the department of communications; Valerie Evans, instructor of management; and Terrie McCants, program coordinator and conflict resolution specialist with the School of Family Studies and Human Services.
