Annual State Hill Day Announcement

Good Morning, 

EANGKS and NGAKS will be hosting their annual State Hill Day on February 18, 2019 at the Kansas State Capitol.  This year we will be continuing momentum on continuing funding State Tuition Assistance (STA) for both Air and Army Kansas National Guard service members.  Includes a $300K increase to last year due to Soldiers/Airmen returning from deployment, more Soldiers and Airmen from increased recruiting as a result of the program, and increased cost of tuition brings the total program cost to ~3M for FY20. This is the big ticket item, there are a few other focuses that the TAG’s office is also working on that we can support.

We need your help on February 18 to encourage our elected official to support this effort.  The recruitment, retention and quality of life of our Guard members will significantly enhanced if this is achieved.      

Come join us for this momentous opportunity–make a difference for our current and future Kansas National Guard members! 

A confirmed agenda for the day will be available later this week.   

Thank you for your time
