Former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft to Keynote KCCBS Scholarship Banquet

Overland Park, Ks. – Kansas City College and Bible School will hold their annual scholarship fundraising banquet and auction on April 11, 2014 in Overland Park. This event will benefit college students of KCCBS as well as students of Overland Christian Schools, a pre-school through grade 12 institution.

Former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft will be the keynote speaker for the program. General Ashcroft served as United States Attorney General from 2000 to 2005. His political career includes service as Missouri auditor, two terms as Missouri attorney general, governor of Missouri from 1985 to 1993 followed by his election to the U.S. Senate representing Missouri from 1994 to 2000.

John Ashcroft’s strong faith is the foundation for his leadership success. Ashcroft certainly understands the need and the challenges for Christian schools such as Kansas City College and Bible School.

"We are certainly honored to have a national leader like John Ashcroft on our campus," said KCCBS President Delbert Scott. "His leadership has made a positive difference in America."

This event is co-sponsored by Christian Healthcare Ministries and Bott Radio Network.
