The importance of an effective and active network of Gorillas has never been more important than it is now. Just as Pittsburg State is an important contributor to the economic success of our state, so too is the state of Kansas an important partner in the continued success of Pittsburg State and its students.

We understand the importance of this relationship and are bolstering our efforts in Topeka on behalf of Gorillas everywhere.

We're happy to announce that we are adding a new member to our advocacy team in Topeka in the form of Riley Scott. Mr. Scott has a great deal of political experience and is well known in Topeka. He served as deputy chief of staff for Sam Brownback when he was in Congress and was the deputy chief of staff and state director for U.S. Senator Jerry Moran, R-Kan.

Riley earned his M.A. in Government and Political Communication from The Johns Hopkins University and a B.S. in Agriculture from Kansas State University.

He will be advocating on our behalf beginning with the 2014 session and will help reinforce the Gorilla message across the capital as well as help develop additional strategies for effective governmental relations.   We're excited to welcome Riley to the team and to have him working alongside Shawn in the halls of the statehouse as well as the steps of D.C.
