2012 Brick by Brick Awards Luncheon- April 3rd

On April 3rd from 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. at the College Basketball Experience (next to the Sprint Center in downtown Kansas City), KCIC will hold its annual Brick by Brick Luncheon. The award winners will again be recognized at the luncheon, which is expecting an attendance of over 160 business and civic leaders. This year’s program, "Infrastructure Challenges; What Would Harry Do?” highlights the challenges and importance of infrastructure to the economy as presented by President Harry S Truman portrayed by local historian Dr. Bill Worley*. “President Truman” will provide perspective of the importance of infrastructure to Kansas City’s economy during his political career and tie to that the importance it still has today and in the future.

*Dr. Worley is a scholar of American History. This has been expressed through authoring several books and through years of teaching, including his present position as Instructor at Blue River Community College-Kansas City. Much of his recent research supports his portrayals of Presidents James Madison, Harry S Truman and Richard Nixon along with other figures of the American scene. Dr. Worley recently co-authored Wrestling Presidents: From Pins to Patriots. Commissioned by the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, this book presents the life story of each wrestling Chief Executive, with special focus on their great (or not so great) scuffling exploits.
