There was more good news in The Eagle this past week. Among the local items was the opening of the new Experiential Engineering Building at Wichita State University. The 143,000-square-foot building includes an open-to-the-public workshop filled with wood, metal and textile crafting machines. It’s a bold addition to WSU’s new Innovation Campus. Another positive story was about how Susan Follis, a Sedgwick woman who has sent care packages to troops overseas for nearly 15 years, received a framed flag that was flown in Afghanistan in her honor. “Sometimes I just want to sit down and cry that these people would do something like this for me,” Follis said. Another encouraging item was about the Katherine Johnson Scholar Sisters, a Wichita math club for African-American girls in elementary school. Phallin Jackson, one of the club members, said she likes math because “you get to be smart.” – Phillip Brownlee
