Elected Officials Honor Sen Bob Dole at Statehouse Ceremony

Former Kansas Senator Bob Dole was honored today (FRI) with a plaque on the Statehouse grounds in Topeka. The plaque is the first in a series called the Kansas Walk of Honor. The markers celebrate the achievements of notable Kansans. Dole and his wife, former Senator Elizabeth Dole, attended the ceremony. Elected officials from around the state gathered to thank Dole for his public service, including Governor Sam Brownback.

Speakers at today’s (FRI) ceremony noted Senator Dole’s work as a long-time lawmaker and his advocacy on behalf of Americans in the armed services. Dole himself served in World War II and sustained an injury that left his right arm paralyzed. Dole said today’s (FRI) honor meant the most of any he's received in his career.

That’s former Kansas Senator Bob Dole speaking today (FRI) at a ceremony in Topeka. Dole's plaque in the Kansas Walk of Honor will be followed by up to three others each year. A committee will choose the notable Kansans to be commemorated.
