What do you enjoy most about working for KA?
It is rewarding to see young men be afforded the experiences and opportunities which will better prepare them for life beyond their college years. KA also helps to mold their character and values system, as well as promote friendships that stay with these young men throughout their life.
What is your favorite KA story?
Hearing numerous stories from men of all ages who tell me that if it were not for KA, they would never have succeeded in business or been as productive as a parent or community leader. I hear these stories from all across the country. It never gets old hearing of the impact KA has had and continues to have with our members.
What impresses you about working for KA?
The high level of dedication and commitment from our KA staff and volunteers is rewarding because it energies me. I also continue to be impressed by the quality of the young men we attract into KA all across the country. Again this aspect reinforces the fact that we are providing opportunities and services that young men want and expect from us.
