Kansas Walk of Honor

Please join Governor Sam Brownback and the State of Kansas in honoring three notable Kansans. Charles Curtis, Amelia Earhart, and Jack Kilby will be honored on the Kansas Walk of Honor. Their bronze plaques will be unveiled at 10 a.m. October 10, 2012, on the south lawn of the Kansas State Capitol. The event is open to the public.

The Walk is located within the sidewalks on the Kansas State Capitol grounds and features people who have made an impact on a state and national level and have significant connections to Kansas.

The three honorees were pioneers in their chosen careers.
