Marilyn Maye honored as 2012 Outstanding Kansas Citian

What a smashing success! The combination of a wonderful site at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, a tasty five-course dinner, honoring Marilyn Maye as our 2012 Outstanding Kansas Citian, and especially enjoying a world-class jazz concert by Marilyn made it a memorable evening.

Marilyn is truly a warm, engaging, and uniquely talented performer. Her spectacular musical talents, plus her pride in being a Kansas Citian made her a very special choice as our 2012 honoree. And because the event focused on American jazz, we also recognized the American Jazz Museum at 18th and Vine by presenting Chief Executive Officer Greg Carroll with an NSDKC marker.  (Excerpted from the October 2012 NSDKC Newsletter.
