SOE alumnus featured on billboards

Billboards around the metro are touting the faces of some of Kansas City’s most outstanding leaders. The showcased leaders come from a wide variety of disciplines and backgrounds, but they all have something in common: they’re all UMKC alumni and they’re all making a big impact on this community.

The first set of billboards feature six UMKC graduates who successfully put their degrees to work in the Kansas City metro. Another set of six graduates will be featured in early October.

It’s all part of the UMKC Proud campaign and the first set of featured leaders include SOE alumnus Joe Seabrooks.

Dr.-Seabrooks-2-214x300Seabrooks (’95 M.A., ’96 Ed.S., ’01 Ph.D.) earned all his degrees at UMKC. He is the president of the Metropolitan Community College-Penn Valley. About his time at UMKC, Seabrooks said, “As a student, UMKC provided me with the safe space and place to think critically about the world we live in.  As a professional, I learned how to lead and to be accountable.  I am forever grateful to the faculty, administrators, staff and students—past and present—who played a role in my growth and development as a professional and as a person.”
