13th Annual KRA Gala Banquet
Friday, January 28, 2011
Congressman Tim Huelskamp is the newly elected Congressman from Kansas' 1st District. Tim was raised in Kansas and following high school attended a seminary in Santa Fe, New Mexico and pursued his bachelor's degree in social science education at the College of Santa Fe. After his undergraduate education, Tim accepted a scholarship to pursue doctoral studies at The American University in Washington, D.C. Studying political science with a specialization in agriculture policy, he completed his Ph.D. there in four years. During his time at American University, Tim met his wife Angela and together they were active in assisting women in crisis pregnancies. Additionally, Tim was busy as a college instructor teaching public policy and working as a statistical analyst. Upon graduation, Tim and Angela turned down various job offers and decided to return home to farm, ranch and raise a family in Fowler, and since then have adopted four children: Natasha, Rebecca, Athan and Alexander. Both girls are from Haiti, while the two boys were already Americans. Together they’ve managed the farm that his grandparents started in 1925 and from 1997 Tim served as a state Senator. One of the state legislature's most conservative members, he has opposed even his GOP leaders in the state Senate on spending issues and will now continue his conservative voting record in Washington, D.C.
Join us in welcoming home one of KRA’s own as we celebrate the victories of 2010 and look forward to the challenges ahead!
