KU Public Affairs Program Thanks Arbo

August 23, 2014

Reggie Robinson, director of the Kansas University School of Public Affairs and Administration, visited the city council during their regular session August 21 to thank them for sharing Steve Arbo, city manager, with their program.

Arbo, an alum of the program, is serving as the 2014-2015 practitioner in residence. He met with students earlier this month in Lee’s Summit to talk first-hand with them about media relations, staff relations and other day-to-day aspects of city management work. The day-long program was for the benefit of students who spend the first year immersed in the academic rigors of the master’s of public education program, and the second year in the “rigor of the real-world,” as described by Robinson. 

Robinson shared his gratitude with the council and the city for the experience. “Thanks for letting us borrow Steve in such a productive way,” he said.

He also noted with a grin that his students had noticed something missing in the mayor’s office of their tour of Lee’s Summit’s fine facilities, presenting Mayor Randy Rhoads with a small figurine of a Jayhawk for his desk.

Rhoads thanked him for the gift, and for the program’s work offering students real-world experience, and noticed Kansas decals on their windows, and that the city highly discouraged that.

Robinson’s only response was, “No comment.”
