You are invited to the Campus & Community Common Read Speaker Event to be held on Wednesday, November 17th at 12:30 p.m. in the Ellis Center Meeting Rooms on the campus of Fort Scott Community College, 2108 S. Horton.
This event is brought to the students, staff, and local community of Fort Scott Community College by a Humanities Kansas grant which offered opportunities to discuss two books, A Choice of Weapons by Gordon Parks and The Other Wes Moore by Wes Moore.
Both are books related to culture and diversity.
Our speaker for the November 17 event is Dr. Jason Kegler, Associate Vice President of Student Life at Pittsburg State University. He has held a variety of diverse roles and positions related to student life, student rights and responsibilities, instruction, admissions and marketing, and county law enforcement.
- The FSCC Campus and Community Read is a semester-long book club that first read and discussed Gordon Parks’ A Choice of Weapons. This reading ended with guest speakers during the Gordon Parks Celebration. Topics discussed were culture and diversity topics faced by Gordon Parks.
- The second book read and discussed was The Other Wes Moore by Wes Moore. Dr. Kegler will talk about culture and diversity related to the book as well as his experiences in southeast Kansas
