Upon graduation, many of them have presented the college with gifts from their home countries, resulting in a 4000-piece collection.

Plus, the story behind the song, "Hold On," by Isaac Cates & Ordained.


People don't make cameos in news stories; the human story is the story, with characters affected by news events, not defined by them. As a columnist and podcaster, I want to acknowledge what it feels like to live through this time in Kansas City, one vantage point at a time.
