Alumni Lecture Series

The 2016-17 Alumni Lecture Series was a huge success. 18 KMC alumni and hundreds of KMC students were in attendance during the 5 lectures. Students were given insight into the various career paths and lessons learned from these alumni.  These are incredibly powerful presentations, and we are so thankful for the time from our awesome alumni!
