Site changed for Parkinson's speech at WSU

Gov. Mark Parkinson will speak Wednesday in the Rhatigan Student Center ballroom at Wichita State University.

Parkinson originally was scheduled to speak at the Marcus Welcome Center. But because of demand, the speech was moved to a larger venue.

His presentation is part of the 2009-10 Distinguished Alumni Speaker Breakfast Series. Parkinson, a 1980 WSU grad, is the first WSU alum to serve as governor of Kansas.

A buffet breakfast begins at 7:30 a.m., with Parkinson's presentation to start at 8. His address will be followed by a question-and-answer period.

Reservations are requested by today. Make reservations at
