BOARD OF REGENTS CHAIR ISSUES STATEMENT REGARDING HAWKER BEECHCRAFT ANNOUNCEMENT
The following is a statement from Regents’ Chairman Gary Sherrer, of Overland Park, regarding today’s Hawker Beechcraft announcement – in particular, tuition reimbursement for Hawker Beechcraft employees, which was a key component of the state’s retention incentive package.
“We’re pleased that a key component of the incentive package was tuition reimbursement, as it underscores the critical role higher education plays in not only attracting new businesses to the state but also in retaining Kansas businesses. Higher education is an economic engine, which is why a strong higher education system is so critically important to the future of our state.”
