Kansans Heart the Humanities

heart_humanitiesOver 120 Kansans have added their signatures to the letter to the House Interior Appropriations Subcommittee in support of funding for the National Endowment for the Humanities and State Humanities Councils, including the Kansas Humanities Council. Here is what they are saying about the impact of KHC and the humanities in their communities:

We are big fans of the Kansas Humanities Council. – Sublette

I firmly support the funding for KHC to continue the enrichment of all Kansas communities and the future of our families. Thank you for your efforts in this worthwhile cause. – Wichita

We feel the state humanities are vital to the quality of life in rural and urban areas of our great state of Kansas. -Elkhart

I definitely want to add my name to the letter! Without NEH funds, I doubt our museum would have ever started, much less continued with our mission. -Concordia

We have had numerous programs from both our State Humanities Council and the NEH on the Road exhibits program. These have allowed us to bring programs and exhibitions to our small community that we would not have been able to do otherwise. Not only do these events offer something new to our community, they also bring people to our town that in turn help our local economy. – Hiawatha
