DIANA KANDER OFFERS WORDS OF WISDOM TO GRADUATING UMKC KANGAROOS!!!
This one is a bit of a surprise but rather STUDIOUS AND KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS noticed something interesting amid this week of Kansas City graduation celebration.
KANSAS CITY POWER BROKER DIANA KANDER GAVE THE COMMENCEMENT ADDRESS TO THE UMKC CLASS OF 2014!!!
Confirmed on Twitter: "What an honor to give the commencement address @UMKansasCity graduation."
We don't know what she said . . . Frankly, most graduates are too worried about getting a job to pay attention to speeches. Maybe it was a bit of advice from her new KICK-ASS biz book . . . But students would be wise to listen to her.
"DK" (as her homies call her) has an impressive list of accomplishments in Kansas City politics . . .
- She and her husband Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander pretty much installed Mayor Sly James into office which is impressive given that the guy didn't have much community involvement prior to his election.
- At some point, she put some lady in jail during a public police sting at a political function which is just as cool as it sounds given I think that the other broad was stealing money.
- And she was smart enough to step back from the Greater Women's Political Caucus before they went all anti-man hating Crystal Williams Crazy.
Don't get it twisted . . . We're fans of Diana Kander and glad to see that she's helping advise the next class of local leaders from our beloved City College.
