Six months of research pay off!
MJ Morgan and students presented to an interested audience at the High Plains Museum on October 18. Attendees represented Northwest Kansas Technical College, Goodland City Commissioners, Sherman County Commissioners, the Goodland Morning Radio program, Goodland public library, local ranchers and farmers; Goodland business owners, and new arrivals to the town as well as long-time residents.
After the talk, there were requests for the highlights, maps, and photos to be made available in a small publication. Dr. Morgan’s presentation, “Goodland, Kansas: A Central Place Phenomenon, 1887-2014,” was funded by a Kansas Humanities Council grant last spring. This has proven a wonderful opportunity for KSU students to become involved in an area of Kansas that has received little attention from universities and researchers.
