UMKC College of Arts and Sciences Alumni Association Board of Directors- Sparkles!

The Tulips on Troost Project, initiated in 2006 by UMKC graduate and Troost business owner Durwin Rice, is a success! Over 50,000 tulips have been planted up and down Troost Avenue. Many organizations and individuals throughout the metropolitan area have and are participating in this project. Southtown selected one special group for the month of March that really sparkled this past fall- the UMKC Arts and Sciences Alumni Association Board. Established in 1991, the board consists of 17 active members headed by President Leo Hirner. Members Jennifer Wilding and Vicki Walker chaired this particular event. Karen Vorst, Dean of the College and Karen Beal, Director of Alumni Relations coordinated the project.
