During an event at the Stueve Siegel Hanson law firm in Kansas City, the Class of 2016 Fellows took turns introducing themselves and talking about their involvement with the fellowship program.

Patrick Stueve is the treasurer of the Alfred Friendly Foundation Board of Directors. A highlight of the event was board President Randall Smith and David Kurpius, Dean of the Missouri School of Journalism, announcing that a formal partnership agreement between Alfred Friendly Press Partners and the university has been signed.
