FSHS Salina to gather professionals

Wednesday, April 22, 2009

At a panel discussion April 30 at K-State at Salina, five professionals from the community will share experience and expertise in the areas of adolescents and mentoring, early childhood education, personal and family finance, community-based educational programs, and caring for the aging.

The panel discussion, open to the public, will be at 6 p.m. in Room 172 in K-State at Salina's Tech Center. It is sponsored by the Family Studies and Human Services Interest Group.

"The five panel members have careers that family studies and human services graduates might go into, from early childhood to the elderly," said Mindy Markham, instructor of family studies and human services at K-State at Salina. "They'll discuss their education, how they got into the field and what their job entails."

The panel includes:

  • Robert Cunningham, director of special programs, The City
  • Rachel Kimmi, family consultant, Heartland Programs
  • Brandon Ebert, financial adviser, Waddell & Reed
  • Mary Lou Odle, district extension agent, K-State Research and Extension
  • Mary Sue Wells, director, Sunflower Adult Day Services
