The Student Legacy Speaker Series, a yearlong series that features philanthropists and development professionals, returns tomorrow for conversation and pizza.
John Kemp will talk about his work at Neighbors Inc., a social-service organization serving Dakota County by providing a variety of basic needs and supportive services. He also will speak about his longtime commitment to serving the community through various organizations he has long been involved in such as the Alzheimer’s Association in Minnesota and the Dakotas.
Kemp spent 25 years in the advertising and marketing business and was CEO of his own firm before deciding to devote more time to the nonprofit sector. He moved to Minnesota in 1980 and has since been involved in a variety of social services serving the Minnesota community.
All students who are interested in the nonprofit sector, philanthropy, volunteering and the Student Legacy Program are invited to attend.
The talk will begin at 8 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 8, in Room 117, McNeely Hall.
This speaker series is sponsored by the Student Legacy Program at St. Thomas, a student club that is devoted to learning about and promoting philanthropy at the university. For more information and to get involved in the program, visit the Student Legacy website or e-mail Kristen Lucius.
