Cindy McCain To Speak At Dole Institute

KSAL StaffMarch 19, 2014

The wife of Arizona Sen. John McCain visits Lawrence next week to discuss leadership, her humanitarian work and life on the campaign trail.

Cindy Hensley McCain will speak the evening of March 25 at the Dole Institute of Politics on the University of Kansas campus.

Institute director Bill Lacy says McCain is best known publicly as the wife of the 2008 Republican presidential nominee. But she also chairs her family’s business, Hensley & Company, a major Anheuser-Busch distributor.

In 1988, McCain founded the American Voluntary Medical Team, which provides emergency medical and surgical care to poor children worldwide. She also serves on the board of a nonprofit dedicated to landmine removal and weapons destruction in war-torn countries. And she’s active in fighting human trafficking in the U.S. and around the world.
