What Matters to Me and Why

• Presenter
Linda Craghead, director of facilities services, Kansas State University
• Talking about...
The Long and Winding Road...
"Life’s journey has followed a long and winding (often detoured) road. Heading to K-State from a small family farm, I majored in animal science and was on a pursuit to become a veterinarian. Life happened and my direction changed. Afforded the opportunity to interview and begin my career with the world leader in agriculture, Cargill, I was assigned to work with the most difficult animal….people. I’ll share the lessons learned from people throughout my life’s detours into the business of mental health, economic development, an appointment as the Assistant and then interim Secretary of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism and finally returning to my alma mater, Kansas State University, as the Director of Facility Services."
RSVP by Tuesday, Nov. 30. Lunch provided.
• This informal lunchtime series builds and strengthens bonds between people who teach, learn, and work together daily, and to foster understanding of how each of us embraces our values and K-State’s Principles of Community.
What Matters to Me and Why encourages reflection within the K-State community on matters of personal values, beliefs, and motivations in order to better understand the lives and inspirations of those who serve and shape the University. The presenter is encouraged to share a story of their personal journey - how they have chosen to live their life, the core values they have adopted, the personal choices they have made and lessons they have learned.
