Delicious “Taste of Southtown

The 18th annual Southtown Business Exchange provided another great opportunity for people throughout the metropolitan area to meet and network. The first “Springboard to Success” event (as it was originally called) was held at the Landing Mall. Over time, the event moved to St. John’s Center, then to Cleveland Chiropractic College and now was held at Alphapointe at 75th and Prospect.

Renovation leads to Sparkle Award

The Mary L. Kelly Community Center opened three months ago in the once vacant Graceland Elementary School at 2803 E. 51st St. The center was made possible by a donation from Joe and Jeanne Brandmeyer. They named the facility after Mary L. Kelly, a long-time resident and former president of Town Fork Creek Neighborhood (TFC).

New Intern at Southtown

I am a senior political science major at University of Missouri – Kansas City (UMKC). After graduating in May, I plan on pursuing an MPA (Master of Public Affairs/Public Administration). At the moment I am awaiting admissions decisions from several universities in the Midwest. In my free time I enjoy yoga, reading, and volunteering as a dog walker at Wayside Waifs.
