The Flint Hills Center for Public Policy in Wichita announces that it has hired a person to assume the role of Vice President of Advancement and Marketing.
This is the second major expansion of staff this year at the Flint Hills Center. In April, it added investigative journalist Paul Soutar to its staff. That has already paid off with several investigations.
Here’s more information from the press release:
