Hannibal, MO—  Hannibal-LaGrange College President Dr. Woodrow Burt hosted a President's Breakfast on April 18. This is a quarterly event to bring to campus leaders in the community who have a desire to improve their operations.

Approximately 32 business persons from Hannibal were in attendance at the breakfast. The guest speaker was Joe McKenna of Kansas City, MO. McKenna began his career with Marion Laboratories as a sales representative in California. In 1980, his career took him to Kansas City, where the company's corporate office was located. Twenty-four years after a very successful career in sales and marketing, McKenna formed The Kenna Company. The work of The Kenna Company is based on what McKenna had learned working in one of the best business cultures of all time. His mission is to help companies select and develop talented and motivated personnel that will produce positive results in their business. According to McKenna, “It all begins with who you hire.”

"I was extremely pleased with the attendance at the latest President's Breakfast,” said Dr. Burt. “The cross-section of community leaders in attendance was very impressive, and the information provided by Joe McKenna was beneficial to all in attendance. I was delighted with the entire event."
