Announcement for Annual State Hill Day
EANGKS and NGAKS will be hosting their annual State Hill Day on February 19, 2018 at the Kansas State Capitol. This year there is a large growing momentum behind fully funding State Tuition Assistance (STA) for both Air and Army Kansas National Guard service members. While state law calls for a 100% of funding for tuition and fees for qualified KSNG services members, historical increases to tuition and institutional fees has decreased the full funding to approximately only 51% for participants. This year there are actions to add STA into the state budget at the fully funded rate.
We need your help on February 19 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!
