The Critical Thinker of the Year Award
This award encompasses William Jewell College’s seven attributes of a Critical Thinker: analytical, passionate, creative, problem solver, humanitarian, truth seeking, and innovative. Jewell will honor a Kansas City citizen who embraces these qualities for the betterment of our community. In 2022, we presented the inaugural award to Karen Daniel, retired executive director, CFO and president of the Global Finance and Technology Solutions division for Black and Veatch, and an active champion for quality and accessible education for all.
“Every year William Jewell College produces hundreds of qualified graduates and engaged citizens who make Kansas City their home. We hope you will join us in supporting these students and the College.”Corporate Sponsor Committee Co-Chair Darren Prenger, '03
