Paulicia Bender is a K-State alumnae who has lived in Manhattan, Kansas, for more than 30 years, and is the proud mom of four unique beings.

Paulicia will share her personal journey from high school dropout to college graduate, and the lessons she’s learned along the way to self-acceptance.
RSVP by Wednesday, Nov. 30: https://kstate.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_57ktKXQPp48giUu (in-person or Zoom). 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.
Friday, December 2 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm
