Asante Sana!

Asante Sana to the Mid-Western Region of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated (AKA) for recognizing our school’s commitment to global impact through worldview learning. On March 18th UVS received the award during the public meeting for AKAs 86th Mid-Western Regional Conference located here in Wichita, Kansas. We are proud to receive such recognition from an organization which has long served the Wichita community and that embodies the spirit of Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility)…And even more excited to be recognized alongside other servant leaders in the community: C.O.R.E., Wichita Health Core Clinic and Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Fraternity, Inc. Check back for more pictures from that evening.
