  1. 1. The alumni chapter hosted the always-popular tour of the Bou- levard Brewery in November. More than 30 alumni from various graduation years attended the sold-out event and received an exclu- sive tour of the brewery while sampling brews. President’s Corner: Welcoming the year What a great 2014! We saw several new alumni join as chapter members and many Kansas City area alumni are liking us on Facebook to stay up-to- date on chapter events and Truman news. One of the highlight events of the year was the annual Boulevard Brew- ery tour. Attendees got a behind-the-scenes look at one of KC’s gems. Thank you for stay- ing engaged in the Tru- man family. It’s now 2015, which means it is time to renew your chapter membership and encour- age other alumni to join the fun. The link to join is donors/alumni-groups/ chapters/kansas-city- chapter/ See below for more information about upcom- ing events to look forward to this year. Alumni Spotlight of the Month: Stacy (Nikodym) Krieg, 1993 Stacy (Nikodym) Krieg (‘93) is a Kansas City art- ist. She paints whimsical and vintage subjects. Stacy uses a unique painting process for some of her work, painting with encaustic, which is bees- wax. Encaustic gives the paintings a lot of unique characteristics and texture. Stacy lives with her two kids, husband, and a plethora of animals in Mission. Her website is www.2- stacy-krieg.artistwebsites. com. Her next event will be in May at the Prairie Village City Hall. Stacy can be reached at Alumni volunteers MLK Day is also Na- tional Service Day. KC Truman alumni volunteered at Rose Brooks, a lo- cal domestic violence shel- ter in Kansas City, Mo. Rose Brooks provides a variety of services to victims of domestic violence. About 16 alumni vol- unteered their morning. Donations were organized and sorted in Rosie’s Clos- et, a room set up like a store for the residents to “shop.” Alumni also organized toys that were donated to the Rose Brooks’ Holiday Store in December for residents and their children. truman alumni volunteer their MLK morning to service February 2015
